The Stranger biography

From Brisbane, Australia comes The Stranger.

In late 2013, guitarist and drummer Kalen AUSTIN and Daniel O'BRIEN, coming down off the glorious ride that was the too short 5 years spent recording and touring with Brisbane Symphonic Metal outfit ALPINE FAULT, joined up to form a new Progressive Rock and Metal outfit. The project was formed from the material composed by Kalen over the previous few years and they set out immediately to complete the line-up.

Auditioning first as Bassist, but who would eventually switch to lead vocals was Tom FRAYNE, who brought his passion and talent for poetry and melody. Following many auditions came Ben NOLAN and his virtuoso ability along with a wealth of musical knowledge from the study at the Queensland University of Technology. Lastly, completing the 5 piece was Brendon BLANCHARD, formerly of Progressive Rock band ARCANE providing his impressive skills on bass guitar, having studied Jazz at the Jazz Music Institute of Brisbane.

The Stranger started with a goal of leaving no musical stone unturned, taking influence from every genre of music and placing their own spin on it, mixed with a solid core of progressive rock and metal to create their own sound, from acoustic ballads to screaming metal to funk, country twang and everything in between.

The Stranger have been working tirelessly at writing, recording, and refining their craft. Their debut album 'The Stranger' will be available in early 2017 - mixed by David Castillo (Katatonia, Opeth, Eluveitie) and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Caligula's horse). The band is eager to take the stage and share their music with the world. The Stranger has been fortunate enough to share the stage with Australian progressive metal powerhouses CALIGULA'S HORSE and German power metal legends HELLOWEEN.
