I haven’t heard an update since 18seconds posted this yesterday, but I’m sending positive thoughts aplenty.
I love this pic of us. I’m calling it us, but you can barely see my feet, those stylin’ kicks belong to Andy. It was taken by a very talented local (Sunshine Coast) photographer named Aaron Shum. I like they way this could totally be some grimey, indie-club gig. But it’s a wedding. In a ridiculous venue called Maleny Manor. And it’s just little old us. Jake & Andy.
Well played, “music lovers” of Australia.

Army Of Champions is a staunch and stocky, hard-running quadricep out of Brisbane. The four piece names a quality collection of modern and classic rockers as inspiration – ones like The Decendents, Against Me!, Springsteen and The Clash are certainly audible – but stylistically, AOC conveys a far more buoyant, danceable, and almost pop catchiness, than isn’t common for such a gritty and ballsy band.
Fans of The Vaccines, Gaslight Anthem, The Angels and the like, will love Army Of Champions. Fans of raw, raucous and radio destined rock with love Burning Alive. Both will wish this was an album and not just an EP.
You can buy the Burning Alive EP (and the band’s previous releases) at www.armyofchampions.net or follow their day to day stupidity at www.facebook.com/armyofchampions
