Full Flower Moon Band are one of the most exciting new acts rising from Brisbane’s die-hard rock’n’roll scene, and on Saturday March 23, they’re launching their new song West Side at The Triffid. And before the show, the venue will celebrate the band with an epic pre-gig party.

Kicking off at 4pm that same day in The Triffid’s beer garden, the free event will feature live sets from fellow Brissy rock outfits Ghost Mutt and Special Features, as well as a DJ set from Vices. You won’t need a ticket to head along, but you can head here for more info on the event itself.

Meanwhile, Full Flower Moon Band’s headline show will kick off in the main Triffid bandroom at 8pm, with support coming from Sunfruits and Radium Dolls (head here for tickets). It celebrates their first release for 2024, the standalone single West Side, which itself comes as their first new music since 2022’s Diesel Forever album.

In a statement from frontwoman Babyshakes Dillon, she explains the new song “has always been a track that bridges our last album Diesel Forever and into a new era of bigger, bolder production”.

She continues: “When I first gave the band the chord charts and ‘rap section’ was written on the page, I think we all knew I wasn’t playing it safe. I worked and re-worked this track, and now it has the essence of a rock song, but structurally it’s quite unusual. It’s exciting to bring in a new era for the band, and I love that the first thing audiences will hear me sing after two years is; ‘I was hoping motherfucker will call me back’. So pick up, Full Flower Moon Band on the line.”

Reviewing a recent show of theirs in Brisbane, Lillian Phillips wrote for “Each member is physical, with a kind of sweating, old-school body language, but Dillon controls everything around her, her voice matching the luminescence and biting, angry chords of the instrumentation. True to the name of the album Diesel Forever, their energy is diesel-powered – every note sounds like the jerking of an arm, the breaking of a bone.”
