"THE ART is beating their forerunners at their own game with music that is not only an ongoing revolt against the corporate sanctioned status quo fitting music into neat categories, but a declaration for the admittedly messy (r)evolution of making life art and art life."

"Front man Azaria could be described as the pied piper with a room full of hungry rats hanging on every sound whispered from his mouth."
- Faster Louder
"The Art have been sharing not only their skill and imagination with audiences over the last 3 or so years but have been creating and infusing a sound and aesthetic that goes beyond that of a mere band pushing out tune after tune in the vain hope of cashing in on whatever scene or genre happens to be that month’s particular flavour."

After their recent signing to Golden Robot Records, THE ART are set to release their second full length album 'All In The Mind' on 11 November 2016.
Once upon a time (OK, 2007), they were called The Follow.
Cut to 2016, and these days they’re called THE ART (after the threat of legal action from a US band called The Follow) and are about to release their next full length album ‘All in the Mind’.
Spearheaded by original members Azaria Byrne and Kara Jayne, THE ART have pretty much been living the rock dream over the past few years with some of the best support slots in the country: The Pixies, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, BRMC... Just to name a few. Last year the band spent close to a year in the US and Europe touring with American group Faster Pussycat on a bus and barely made it back to Australia in one piece.
The band recorded their new record at Electric Sun Studios, with producer Stevie Knight, and is available to pre-order NOW.
