Logic Defies Logic

Logic Defies Logic was founded in Hamilton, New Zealand, in 2012 by guitarist Ollie Wright, bassist Matt Hewlett, drummer Dom Ryan and keyboardist Ian Watson. With many combined years of performing and producing music under their belts, the band instantly began work composing and developing a powerful and eclectic ensemble. They began performing around the country to an immediately eager audience. The group's dedication to writing honest, expressive music as well as the undeniably charismatic live performances saw them win the 2013 International Tattoo Expo Battle of the Bands competition. Such perseverance and vision also saw them earn the opening slot for American progressive and instrumental luminaries Between the Buried and Me and Animals as Leaders. 

2013 also saw the release of an instrumental album and the group's unquenchable desire to flourish initiated the decision to move abroad to Melbourne, Australia at the end of the year. The search for the right vocalist to add to the instrumental mix began in mid-2014. Without hesitation the group enlisted the diversely talented ex-Machete Justice vocalist; Tarquin Keys. From the first jam, everyone knew it was on like Kong. The circle now complete, international support slots for HLAH (NZ) Devilskin (NZ) and Rival Sons (US) quickly followed and new material was enthusiastically received by rabid new audiences. 

The band entered their home-base of Backline Studios in May 2016 to begin recording of their debut album, “MAGIC & SCIENCE”. Produced by guitarist Wright and mixed by US-based engineer, Shawn Sullivan (The Mars Volta, Bleeding Through) the six track album will take the listener on a musical journey that touches on every influence the band has ever absorbed and results in a unique and hook-laden sonic experience.

A band not lacking one iota of sonic integrity, Logic Defies Logic is a force of nature, a perfect storm of magic and science.
