Forming in 2008, The Word are an up and coming Melbourne based Rockband who have been playing their attention grabbing music to anyone within listening distance.
Launching themselves into the Melbourne music scene with their debut self-titled EP (2010), recorded at Sing-Sing studios with the very talented Matt Voigt (Living End, Powderfinger, Dukes of
Windsor), The Word are heavily inspired by any music that moves them, particularly 60′s music such as the The Who and The Beatles (from whom they took their name) and 90′s alternative rock, such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, and Radiohead.
With influences from such a huge array of bands, The Word’s only criteria when it comes to their songwriting is to “write something that sounds different”.
Having played in just about every Melbourne venue with a massive array of local and interstate bands as well as some big support slots (John Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite), The Word have crafted an musical relationship on and off stage that never fails to please a new audience.
