The concept of The Beards is simple – A rock band that exclusively perform songs about just one subject: Beards. With a three-album back catalogue of crowd favourites like If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard,You’ve Got Two Mums, You Should Consider Sex with a Bearded Man and No Beard, No Good, The Beards continue in their ceaseless journey to make the world a more beard-friendly place.
The Beards have gained a cult following in Australia after touring the nation relentlessly over the last few years. Notable performances include the Falls Festival, The Big Day Out, Woodford Folk Festival and of course their visit to Alaska to perform at the World Beard and Moustache Championship’s opening ceremony.
The Beards have always combined the brilliant and the comedic in creating online content and the success of this is evident. Their YouTube channel has received over two million views and their clips have received national attention on Australian television.
In 2012 The Beards released their third album Having a Beard is the New Not Having a Beard. The album’s first single You Should Consider Having Sex With a Bearded Man came in at 99 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and was nominated for the 2012 APRA Song of the Year. The album is nominated for ARIA Comedy Album of the Year 2012. Their album launch and consecutive second single tour sold out nationally and received rave reviews. The release of the second single film clip ‘Got me a Beard’ saw the band receive increasing international attention.
