Biography

Fear of Comedy can be likened to the outlaw, who steps menacingly through the doors of the saloon to the awed silence and stares of its patrons, who are not sure who he is or what he’s doing, but are certain he’s about to cause trouble.

“The aim of Fear of Comedy is to take over the world” – Laith Tyranny, vocals.

Not content with what God has created Fear of Comedy toil and experiment to gestate their own musical hybrids which are at once strange and infectious. With their playfully aggressive style, these innovators of ‘survival horror’ deliver a sonic assault of punk and hard rock with a touch of cabaret, spaghetti westerns and the carnivalesque. Fear of Comedy’s unique brand of ‘avant-punk’ draws on many different influences from across the musical spectrum and is constantly evolving, becoming more than the sum of its parts, and takes on a life of its own. Fear of Comedy mine our darkest fears and desires to fuel the chaos they channel into their music, taking the listener on a journey through the underworld; from bar room brawls and sideshow freaks to the lunatic fringe and the end of the world.

“Fear of Comedy are to horror – sci-fi what Nick Cave is to Murder-Mystery” – Xpress Magazine.

While not card carrying members of any particular scene, Fear of Comedy can more than hold their own amongst the myriad bands of different styles and genres that populate Australia and the rest of the world.
