The Depths is the third album by Brisbane based Australian band, The Blackwater Fever. Recorded, mixed and produced by the band from their home studio, Parallel Sound, the album represents an evolution in songwriting and production.

“The Depths is our best release yet and the first we have made entirely under our own steam. It was a huge learning curve with much trial and error but in the end I think the result has vividly realised our ideas and vision. This is how we’ll do it from now on.” - Shane Hicks (Vocals/Guitar)

The 14 tracks journey through blues, soul, trip-hop, story telling, instrumental and rock n’ rock, all forged together with their unique, dark, atmospheric sound. The album also marks the duo becoming a three piece, bringing bass and organ into the fold.


The band have performed at major festivals such as The Big Day Out, Blues Fest, Peats Ridge, Festival Of The Sun and Valley Fiesta. They have opened for the likes of The Black Keys, Heavy Trash, Birds Of Tokyo, The Datsuns, Calling All Cars, Tame Impala, Violent Soho, Mia Dyson and The Mess Hall.

The Blackwater Fever have had considerable radio airplay with Triple J, Triple R, PBS and internationally in the USA and Europe. Their music has featured on the HBO and ABC television networks and been the soundtrack for Benetton and Quiksilver campaigns, plus Australian feature films, The Tunnel and The Crossing.
