LOSER are one of those bands that really hit the ground running upon inauguration and cease to slow down. It’s what led to their second full length record, All The Rage, an appropriate title for such a band, who are out there making a lot of noise for themselves, literally and figuratively.

Born out of Melbourne/Naarm, the rock group built up some momentum after their self-titled debut single in 2018, leading up to the release of a debut record in 2020. But the shape of a follow-up record came after vocalist Tim Maxwell suffered a breakdown in the studio while recording the album’s lead single On The Edge, where the resulting self-recorded album comes as a lifeline and offers something to those struggling with mental health in the pandemic. Ultimately All The Rage is a record of hope and encouragement to stay strong and to keep pushing forward. That no matter what you or the world is going through, you’re not and you never will be alone.
