8Foot Felix launched in 2011 in Melbourne’s boho epicenter, Open Studio in Northcote. Within two years we toured to the Americas – playing in San Francisco, at Burning Man and in Honduras – and to the UK – playing Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and Boomtown Fair. In 2012 we also initiated a headline slot on Rainbow Serpent Festival’s Playground Stage that continues to this day. Our return there year-on-year marks our growth as band like rings on a tree, as we deepen our musical bond in the rehearsal room, evolve our sound with a voracious appetite for genre-play and instrumental exploration, and strengthen our live presence on stages up and down Australia.
In 2015 we recorded our debut album Mad Isle at Sing Sing Studios, launching it the following year at a sold-out gig at the Gasometer Hotel. In 2017 we toured to New Zealand and returned to the recording studio, this time exploring the old skool by recording direct to tape. The results of these sessions are being mastered in Mexico by longtime collaborator Israel Arteaga and will be released in the second half of 2018. As far FRL goes, hold on tight! It’s gonna be ENORMOUS
