"Fun, fast-paced, a little weird, pretty much sums up Japam!"
- TEO Magazine

JAPAM - Which is either the applied use of a mantra, or a drunken mispronunciation deemed too good to pass up as a band name, was the brainchild of Adelaide guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Seb Hudson. Seb's desire to take his popular online recordings to the live stage began with the initiation of vocalist Ryan Lucivero. Soon after, Ben Whitehorn filled the role as bass player/hype man, and Jack Thomson, with his commanding drumming style and experience through his many projects to add an air of authority to the rhythm section. Early 2015 the need for a second guitarist was made apparent, so Japam recruited long haired lout, Andreas Murphy, formerly of Soft White Machine... And thus, the fold was complete.

“In Japam’s short career they’ve already garnered themselves props in the underground through airtime on multiple radio stations nationwide, and this EP really proves they’re a band to keep an eye out for.”
- AAA Backstage

In the infancy of the bands career, they have started building on an already impressive resume with airtime on Triple J's The Racket, Andrew Haug Radio, along with rotation on community radio stations Australia wide. Other achievements include:

JAPAM WANT TO ASK THE USA AND EUROPE… “HOW’S MY EP?” 
JAPAM are bringing back the bounce! Combining influences from the heavy, technical groove of modern progressive music to the melodic appeal of 90's pop and rock music, the band creates an energetic and infectious soundscape, sure to please a vast array of keen music listeners. They have gone and released “How’s My EP?” - a collection of some of the most fun rock tracks you’ve heard in a long time.
JAPAM - Which is either the applied use of a mantra, or a drunken mispronunciation deemed too good to pass up as a band name, is the brainchild of 5 cheeky buggers from Adelaide. In the leadup to the release of the EP, they released the filmclip to DK Facepunch. The vibrant clip features the guys tearing out the song in a white medical laboratory with Apes (presumably the DK or Donkey Kong responsible for the punching of faces) investigating the guys, cautiously at first and then destroying their gear and attacking the boys as they play the hard out track. Fun, Fast-Paced a little Weird - pretty much sums up Japam!
In the infancy of the bands career, they have started building on an already impressive resume with airtime on Triple J's The Racket, Andrew Haug Radio, along with rotation on community radio stations Australia wide. Other achievements include Heavy Mag Australia 'film clip of the week' for their karaoke/lyric video for debut single 'Wolf Harass', Features in reputable magazines and online blogs including TheMusic, I Probably Hate Your Band, Killyourstereo, Teo Magazine, Happy Media and more, plus #1 spot on the Triple J Unearthed metal charts, 5th, 2nd and 2nd on the rock, pop and punk charts, and #26 overall for over 3 consecutive weeks.
Japam released debut EP 'Hows My EP?' mid-May, receiving positive receptions by both press and music fans alike. Backing the release, the boys hit the road on their first Australian tour, playing select east coast capital cities. Although fairly new on the scene, the boys have left a big impression on gig goers, press and other successful artists within their niche, with their unique sonic blend and dynamic stage shows. Keep an eye on this space for future releases, band related news and of course, good ole' fashioned Japamese tomfoolery.

MEDIA LOVE FOR JAPAM
"Deep, chugging djent and catchy pop tendencies delivered with laser precision and musical
technicality; Japam's How’s My EP? has the full package."
- HAPPY MEDIA
“In the heavy rock scene it can be difficult to distinguish your sound from the rest. Yet, How’s My
EP intelligently experiments with different genres, blending heavy guitars with clean vocals and
catchy hooks.” - TEO Magazine
“In Japam’s short career they’ve already garnered themselves props in the underground through
airtime on multiple radio stations nationwide, and this EP really proves they’re a band to keep an
eye out for.” - AAA Backstage
“They’ve managed to incorporate the low tuned heavy guitar sound associated with the kind of
bands you’d find on UNFD, but they defy the genre casting that would come with it by opting for a
more rock/pop angle in the songwriting.“ - My Indie Australia
“The EP ends on a triumphant note on the track Leggy Blonde featuring flying guitar licks. All in
all, How's MY EP? Is a tight and concise release.” – The Music
