Delivering a compelling blend of diverse musical styles, Brisbane Rock four-piece PatientLounge masterfully craft a combination of innovative instrumentation, dominant vocals and zealous energy to offer a fresh spin on Aussie Progressive Rock/Prog Pop-Rock music.
Formed as Therapist in 2016, and debuting as Patient Lounge in 2019, the band presents a unique fusion of classic rock, prog, jazz, death metal and modern pop influences to produce intricate songs with a captivating groove, incorporating pop sensibilities in progressive rock tracks. The rhythm section of Nick Keogh (Matilda Red) on Drums and Tom Logan (Internal Devour/Inhailed) on Bass creates a distinctive pulse that is layered with vocalist/guitarist Zach Eather’s powerful melodies and Eric Moors’ (Amicable Treason) lead guitar prowess.
Across the last two years, the band have brought their high energy, entertaining stage presence and raw charm to acclaimed Brisbane venues including The Triffid, The Zoo, Woolly Mammoth, Crowbar, Black Bear Lodge and Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall; and to interstate staples such as Frankies Pizza By The Slice (Sydney) and Bombay Rock (Melbourne). They have shared the stage with international acts Pop Evil (US) and Haken (UK), and have performed alongside bands such as Smoking Martha, Port Royal, Mass Sky Raid, He Danced Ivy and Flynn Effect.
After the release of their self-produced EP ‘Therapist’ in 2018, Patient Lounge released their debut single ‘All You Want’ in April 2019 – a song with an evolving pop/rock/prog-rock sound that exemplifies the distinct variety that Patient Lounge has to offer. After successfully showcasing their meticulously cohesive and fiercely engaging live show interstate on their first tour across May/June/July 2019, Patient Lounge performed at Dead of Winter Festival 2019 alongside COG and Disentomb to close out their ‘All You Want’ East Coast Single Tour.

“This is a melting pot of everything from prog, to power-metal to pop rock. Quite the spicy mix!”
“Alternative rock meets pop, perfectly enhanced by classic rock lead guitar work, a ferocious rhythm section and a whiskey-tinted husky vocal, adding character and originality to this beautiful concoction.”
