Cog is an Australian progressive rock band, founded in 1998. The debut album 'The New Normal' was nominated for various prizes. The music is strongly influenced by the styles of Brett Student, Tool, Isis, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, Leftfield, Deftones and Helmet. The band has a very distinctive sound and became one of the most successful independent prog bands from Australia over the years.
April 12th is always a special day in the Cog world. It’s a little known fact that both albums came out on April 12th. The New Normal was 2005 and Sharing Space was 2008. Give the ole gals a crank today and let us know what your favourite song from both albums are.
Good morning compañeros.
After more than a fortnight of travelling and performing across the UK and Europe we have somehow made it back home intact. To say it was an amazing experience would be an understatement. We played 9 shows in places we’d never been, to many people we’d never met before and it was indeed surreal and sublime in so many ways. We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to all those who turned out and attended the shows. Especially those that travelled such long distances for a chance to see the bands play. Thank you. A massive thank you to our good friends and touring companions @sleepmakeswavesaus for their enthusiasm, their humour, their patience and their talent. And last but not least to our crew for going all out for us and making something so demanding and logistically complicated so much fun for us. It was an incredible experience for the band and we sincerely look forward to returning to Europe and doing it all over again! Cheers!!! Luke, Flynn & Lucius.
