Triangle Fight will bring their progressive rock back to the region next month.

Warmly received in the South West for their juicy riffs and a mixture of hard rock, pop and reggae, the band return after a rousing performance at Settlers Tavern in October.

Lead singer Paulo Gonzalez said the crowd in Margaret River always brought an electrifying atmosphere.

“We had the best time so we’re so excited to go back and see some familiar faces to rock out with,” he said.

Their latest album, Blood Giant, is based on a tragedy the band no longer speak of.

“It’s a very personal homage and social commentary of what was happening around 2016 — the hysteria going on and a hypocritical self-righteous social movement that was tearing apart the fabric of society,” Gonzalez said. “The theme is based on gestures of good that were having evil results.”

The four-piece includes Gonzalez, guitarist Dan Silvestri, bassist Martin Gonzalez and drummer Sofia Varano. The group have been close friends and bandmates since 2012, and helped Gonzalez overcome depression. “I guess I suffered from a reverse culture shock, I was in Japan and totally confined to that way of life and I just wasn’t up for the chaos that I returned to in Australia,” Gonzalez said.

After confiding in old friend Varano, the band was reignited, with Gonzalez channelling his inner darkness, inspired by RX Bandits and Muse.

“It’s just something I have to do (make music),” he said.

“As soon as I did again, all the excitement and positivity came back into my life.

This metamorphosis has translated to Triangle Figh’ts live show after a collective journey of self-discovery.

“During the creation of the Blood Giant it felt like we grew — musically it was a massive step forward for us.

“Now we can’t wait to put on a great show that will pump people up,” Gonzalez said.

Triangle Fight will play Settlers Tavern on Saturday, August 3, from 9.30pm.
