Unpaid Debt
Perhaps it’s about being in the right place at the right time, perhaps it’s about hard work and dedication. For Sydney’s punk rockers Unpaid Debt it’s about both. So when the opportunity came up to support their life long idols, a dream became a reality and a burning desire to excel was augmented.

Having the chance to perform alongside the Bouncing Souls would definitely have been a pivotal point for the career of Sydney’s Unpaid Debt. Firstly the US punkers took them under their wings, treated them as equals and gave them a chance to impress and be impressed. Secondly it saw the more formal introduction to the Frenzal Rhomb lads who, on the same tour took such a liking to the four piece couldn’t look past them as inclusions on Lindsay’s ‘Rock Against Howard’ Compilation with their anthemic track Call it a Day. It also forged a solid friendship with the fellow Sydneysiders. Thirdly and possibly most notably, it was only a few weeks after these gigs that saw the Unpaid Debt crew get chosen from over three thousand entrants to win the illustrious and extravagant New South Wales edition of the Unearthed competition held by national radio station Triple J.

But it doesn’t stop there…

No strangers to sharing the stage with the big guns, you name them Unpaid Debt has probably supported them. The Mad Caddies, Goldfinger, Against Me!, Guttermouth, One Dollar Short, The Hard-Ons, and The Vandals are just a few that spring to mind.

Need further proof?

After turning heads on a support show with US legends Lagwagon in 2003, the band has asked for Unpaid Debt to tour nationally alongside them in October of 2004.

Hours upon hours on the road has become an experience all too familiar for the band and can only be equalled by the amount of hours spent in the recording studio. Since their formation in 2000, Unpaid Debt recorded their first six-track EP The Sucker Punch and a year later recorded another ten tracks for their second EP Talk to the Hand. Of which, this EP was voted as ‘CD of the Week’ in Revolver Magazine and ‘Best Local Release’ in Mixdown’s punk poll for 2001. Again a year later, this time with the help of MGM Distribution, the Ugly on the Inside EP was recorded and the track No Apologies reached the number 1 position on’s punk charts and remained as one of the most downloaded tracks for over twelve weeks.

But that was then, this is now…

After affirming a solid line up, drummer Damien exclaims as “The four people in this band now function perfectly together both musically and personally and I don’t think that will change.” It was time to once again lay down tracks for their latest EP release Broken Hearts and Broken Bones this time arousing attention from the offices of Chatterbox Records who are releasing the six-track EP. Including the winning ‘Unearthed’ track Verity, the EP is set to send the band on a National tour in November 2004. Presented by Triple J, Blunt Magazine and Bombshell Zine, it seems these guys make an impression with everything they do.

Perhaps it’s about being in the right place at the right time, perhaps it’s about hard work and dedication. Whatever it is, the Unpaid Debt crew are making a noise that is impossible to ignore.
