Named after the iconic roguish stage character, Scaramouche is rock band based in Melbourne, Australia. Scaramouche have crafted a fresh, dynamic and appealing sound shaped by rich and unique compositions delivered with a staunch rock attitude. Scaramouche formed in Canberra in 2008, quickly becoming prominent on the live scene before relocating to Melbourne in 2011 where they have already stirred much excitement. With a lineup secured around Pat Little (vocals), Leigh Barker (guitar), Grey Milton (bass), and John Milton (drums), Scaramouche have become recognised as an exciting and upcoming professional band with a unique flair for showmanship and talent.
In March 2011, Scaramouche released their first EP Access Denied. Recorded by one of Australia’s most prominent producers Stuart Stuart (the Veronicas, the Small Mercies), Access Denied showcases an exciting, balanced and timeless set of tracks that has lauded much promising feedback and opened many doors for the band. Since recording the EP they have ranked as runners-up in the ASA 2010 Australian Songwriting Contest, had community radio play across Australia, given live performances and interviews on UCTV and Noise TV, and secured a series of high-profile gigs, effortlessly holding their own alongside premiere national acts.
The band is also known for undertaking various charity gigs and donating profits, supporting various domestic and international causes. Scaramouche recently made a special appearance at Hell or High Water, a fundraising benefit for the Queensland floods in early 2011.
The Scaramouche live show is an exhilarating whirlwind of sweat-drenching energy charged with hair-raising vocals, groove-laden drums, wailing guitar showdowns and driving precise bass.
Scaramouche are gearing up to release a second EP in 2012.
