Stepson are a 4 piece melodic-hardcore band from Brisbane, QLD that pride themselves on having high energy, honest lyrics and raw, emotive music. The band first kicked things off with their debut EP ‘Broken Bottles / Drunken Hearts’ in 2014 which immediately saw them make their way around the country. The following year, the band released their sophomore EP titled ‘Echoes In An Empty Room’. EIAER was very well received nation-wide, Alex Sievers (Killyourstereo) joked that “you might need a Valium while listening to this emotion-filled release”.

In 2016, Stepson released one single (Never Mind Me) and a 3-track EP (The Beautiful Lie). Never Mind Me was intended to be an amalgamation of the two EP’s released in the previous years, and that it was. It really compressed the band’s sound into one track and made it easy to understand what Stepson really is… until they released The Beautiful Lie.

The Beautiful Lie is a compilation of 3 songs that share very few traits with the previous music released by the band. With Brock’s clean singing and raw lyrics being the only real similarity between this EP and their past EP’s, TBL presents us with only clean, ambient guitars, atmospheric synthesisers & pads and some electronic sounds that rings bells with Lorde.

Along the way, Stepson have been given the chance to share a stage with international acts such as Counterparts, Title Fight, Capsize and While She Sleeps as well as some of Australia’s finest like Ocean Grove, Hellions and Storm The Sky. The band was also given the opportunity to perform at 2016’s sold-out Invasion Fest alongside some heavier acts such as Kublai Khan, Graves & Cursed Earth.

Stepson has elevated to new heights in 2017 with the release of their latest endeavour 'Come with me' which has been widely received as their best work to date. Vocalist Brock Alan Conry writes "The song 'Come With Me' is about the constant self-deprecation you face when you think you aren't good enough for some one you truly care about. For me personally, I thought I was doing the right thing but the extent of what I created was ultimately the worst thing I could've done. I've always been one to ignore issues, particularly to do with my own feelings, but little did I know it is quite possibly the worst and most harsh things you can do to a person that cares about you. The permanent fear of not knowing whether or not you're good enough for someone who has treated you with nothing but love and respect is completely horrifying and I do not wish it upon anyone. In turn, I loved and lost someone due to my constant push and pull and this song is about how I felt during that very trying time.
