Melbourne alternative rock/emo five-piece Reside have won the triple j Unearthed competition to open UNIFY Gathering 2020.
Reside’s year took them to new heights with the release of their sophomore EP ‘The Light That I Found’, which they’ll now be flaunting at UNIFY alongside hardcore legends The Ghost Inside, metalcore heavyweights Architects and Australian favourites in Northlane, Polaris and more.
The Melbourne self-appointed sad boys lead their year with the single Replace Me which received high praise from triple j hosts, was immediately added to Spotify playlists New Punk Tracks, The Scene and Rock Out and recently cracked over 100,000 Spotify streams.
The EP followed shortly after, which soon found its way to the ears of hundreds of thousands of listeners, sold out its launch show at Melbourne’s Cherry Bar.
It also provided the band with the opportunity to jump on a national tour with fellow emo sweethearts Eat Your Heart Out and secured Reside spots on tours and local spots for the likes of Palaye Royale (US), Windwaker, Young Lions, The Beautiful Monument, Better Half, Belle Haven, Stateside and Casey (UK).
