Scatterfly is bringing its dynamic rock show to the Square for the first show of 2013, to give everyone a taste of whats to come for this exciting new band. Scatterfly is fast becoming one of Sydney's top live acts with their blistering live show driven by powerful drumming, intricate guitar work, emotion packed vocals and grooving bottom end. 2012 saw the band recruit new vocalist, Brad Stubbs and it has all been up from there, gaining support slots with Twelve Foot Ninja, Breaking Orbit and Jericco as well as selling out their first headline show. The band has since entered the studio with producer Lucius Borich (Cog, Floating Me) to record their brand new single 'Sever' which is now available for free download from the band's page.

Opia comes straight from the red hot Perth progressive scene. Having supported Dead Letter Circus, Mammal and Sydonia among other national touring acts along with extensive headline touring on the west coast, the time is right for Opia to bring their live show to the east coast for the first time. The band writes music to move mountains and can be as ethereal and light, as it can be earthy and heavy. Opia is coming to Sydney to promote the release of their new single 'Undone' which is the first glimpse of what to expect from their forthcoming album. This is the only chance for Sydney punters to catch this prog beast from WA.

Surrender the Sun formed in late 2012 from the ashes of previous band Geminine. In their short existence they have already played their own headline shows in Sydney as well as winning the 'Most Popular Band' at the 2012 Heavenly Noise Music Awards. Having already generated a lot of intrigue with their professional live show, the band has been busy in the studio with producer Dylan Mitrovich (Breaking Orbit) recording their debut full length album. This is definitely a band to look out for in 2013!

Toy Envy are newcomers to the Sydney live scene and are already making waves. Described as progressive/experimental rock, make sure you get down early to catch these boys.
