Spawned on election night in 2012, Bansheeland is the brain fetus of Mary Shannon (Disrepute), developed in a mist of rage due to the rise of the Abbott Era. A brooding stoner aesthetic meets lush guitar lines, driving and harmonic vocals deliver biting social commentary and an insiders view of the paranoid mind. They’ve landed several support slots with national and international acts including Against Me!, Californian neo-punk duo, The Garden and local legends like Spiderbait, Dallas Frasca, Wet Lips and Camp Cope. In a review of Tassie music, managing editor of I Probably Hate Your Band, John Welmanshire Mason said: “I have absolutely no doubt Bansheeland will make waves in Australia and overseas… Bansheeland is an extremely talented and young band producing amazing original content who, in time, will truly have the world at their feet.”
