The Balls

Bio

Formed in 2011, The Balls is a monster-bearded, hard-riffin’, stoner-punk-rock trio homegrown in Melbourne, Australia. In 2017 the band undertook a mammoth 22-show tour in 30 days across Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Austria, playing venues from the famous Kaiserkeller in Hamburg to Eddie’s Biker Bar, Althütte and opening the ski season at the Keller Bar in the Austrian ski resort of St Anton. Firmly bitten by the Eurobug, they returned to Germany for a follow-up tour in September 2018, where they headlined at SinnerRock festival in Altengronau.

The band is currently working on a new album for 2019.

The Balls:

In the press

“They are a band that chew up stages: a frenetic, furious musical proposition like few others. … They might be one of the tightest live acts Melbourne has to offer”

Joseph Earp,  beat.com.au

“Nothing prepared the punters for what was about to be unleashed from hard rockers The Balls.  …pure, unadulterated blast-your-face off hard rock, like a spell you could not break. … Make no mistake, these guys come at you like a freight train and are wicked to get the juices flowing on the dance floor.”
