The concept of The Beards is simple – A rock band that exclusively perform songs about just one subject: Beards. With a three-album back catalogue of crowd favourites like If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard,You’ve Got Two Mums, You Should Consider Sex with a Bearded Man and No Beard, No Good, The Beards continue in their ceaseless journey to make the world a more beard-friendly place.
The Beards have gained a cult following in Australia after touring the nation relentlessly over the last few years. Notable performances include the Falls Festival, The Big Day Out, Woodford Folk Festival and of course their visit to Alaska to perform at the World Beard and Moustache Championship’s opening ceremony.
The Beards have always combined the brilliant and the comedic in creating online content and the success of this is evident. Their YouTube channel has received over two million views and their clips have received national attention on Australian television.
In 2012 The Beards released their third album Having a Beard is the New Not Having a Beard. The album’s first single You Should Consider Having Sex With a Bearded Man charted in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and was nominated for the APRA Song of the Year. The album was nominated for ARIA Comedy Album of the Year 2012.
2014 saw The Beards release The Beard Album – their beardiest album to date. The album is again nominated for Australia’s prestigious ARIA Awards and The Beards undertook a massive 50 date national Australian tour to celebrate it’s release.
The Beards will head to the UK/EU in late 2014 to play their most comprehensive tour to in Europe – covering England, Ireland, Scotland, Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and Norway.
Bearded men, put down those trimmers – the Beard Revolution has come.
