Pierce Brothers have taken their music from busking on the streets of Melbourne to the world. Their irresistible energy and world-class live show has generated a word of mouth buzz not seen for some time. Comprising of twin brothers Jack and Pat Pierce, the multi-instrumentalists have been shaking dance floors and selling out rooms across UK, Europe, Canada, USA & their native Australia.
Latest EP ‘The Records Were Ours’ came in at #9 on the ARIA chart after topping the iTunes charts across the globe. To celebrate the brothers are embarking on a mega World tour across Europe/UK, Australia/NZ and a lap of North America supporting Tash Sultana.
"Pierce Brothers have exploded as one of Australia’s must-see up-and-coming live acts. Their DIY approach sees them functioning entirely independently, free from major labels, the duo have now sold over a staggering 40,000 CDs, featured in NME and blown audiences away at sell-out shows from Melbourne and Sydney to London and Liverpool"

“Flooded with warmth and vitality, this EP is a tribute to the Pierce Brothers’ grass roots approach...
…Its diverse musicality allows listeners to sink into wistful ballads, only to resurface amidst a whirlwind of knee slapping and foot tapping festivity.”
- The AU Review. 8.3 / 10
“‘Into The Dirt’ is likely to catapult these twins into the big time…
…Throughout, the brutal honesty and heartfelt song writing will captivate long-time fans and first time listeners.”
