Australian Kingswood Factory


Australian Kingswood Factory is a roaring punk-n-roll three-piece with full-throttle swagger on the guitars and an impressive mohican behind the drums. The boys have just released their second album, Bloodshot and Shakin’, a fast-paced, gut-punching noise explosion that pays tribute to the worst hangover you ever had.

Already well-established on the Melbourne circuit, AKF has recently had great success supporting international legends including Richie Ramone, Nekromantix, Guitar Wolf, Supersuckers and Red Fang.


In the press

…Energetic and powerful, AKF showed no signs of wear or tear, keeping true to their social media tagline: “DIRTY, FAST and BUILT TO LAST”. Pleasurable to a fault, they demonstrated their prowess like pros and ended the first section of their set with their thunderous track ‘Rock and Roll MF’.

Fill up the tank; you’re in for one hell of a ride

Paul Bradford reviewing Bloodshot and Shakin’in Mysteria Maxima

punk, raw, rambunctious, and in your face. Like a good 1970’s Holden Kingswood they only know two ways to drive, flat out and stop, and drive they did.  Flat out rock and roll played fast, hard, and well.
