WITHOUT PARACHUTES are a three-piece rock band from Wollongong, New South Wales with roots in alternative, indie and grunge genres.
2013 saw the release of their first self-titled EP and single ‘It’s Time Again’ which Triple J’s Dave Ruby Howe called
“… a big, menacing vibe with Soundgarden-sized riffs and stadium ambitions.”
Now with the firepower of ARIA award-winning producer Nick DiDia (Karnivool, Powderfinger, Rage Against the Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen) behind them, they’ve unveiled a thudding musical composition of thundering percussion, melodic rhythms and soaring vocals in their latest EP – ‘This Is a Fire.’
Members William Cruger (lead vocals & guitar), Michael Cooper (bass & vocals) and Bob Stewart (drums & backing vocals) have supported bands like Papa Vs Pretty, The Getaway Plan, British India, Closure in Moscow, Voyager and The Delta Riggs.
