Hammers Bio

Forging unpredictable grooves, jagged riffs and tasty hooks, Northern Rivers rockers Hammers are Australia’s answer to the lovechild of Every Time I Die, He Is Legend and Alice In Chains. Comprising vocalist Leigh ‘Fish’ Dowling, guitarist and vocalist Lucas Stone, bassist Ricky T and drummer Ryan ‘Ruckus’ Lucas, the trademark Hammers brand gifts a rock’n’roll explosion for the ages, bringing together passion, technicality and an affable tongue-in-cheek swagger.

A grower and a shower, a lover and a fighter, Hammers are unapologetically flying the flag for true blue Australian rock’n’roll in a modern industry where fortune rarely seems to favour the bold. But, in true Hammers fashion, the quartet’s uncompromising wares have continually transcended any roadblocks in their way, striking an unforgettable balance between flippant fun and searing substance without sacrificing genuine craftsmanship. Equally in-demand onstage as they are for their diverse sonic smorgasbord, the brawny might of Hammers is only amplified further by the band’s boisterous musical flavours, Aussie spirit and authentic camaraderie.

As 2022 draws to a close and eyes turn to 2023 and putting the dreaded pandemic well and truly in the rearview mirror, Hammers continue to grab the musical bull by the horns with plans beyond their upcoming national tour including international shows and an online shop and merch expansion. And with more surprises still lying in wait from Hammers HQ, fans can certainly bet this lot will continue kicking goals in and around the heavy scene with their signature beautiful brutality and cheeky flair.
