Once Remained was formed in 2011 on the Central Coast of NSW.
Influenced by the heavy riffs and vocal melodies of bands such as Trivium and Alter Bridge, Once Remained deliver high-energy hard rock music and live performances.
2013 saw the successful release of Once Remained’s self-titled debut E.P. Cassie Walker of Heavy TV calls it “one of the biggest sounding debuts… ever!” and states “the professional sound proves these guys are no new kids on the scene and paves the way for a scene changing follow up.” Beau Hill (Producer – Alice Cooper) cites the opening track ‘Sticks & Stones’ as having “serious musical brainpower.”
Following the launch of their E.P. Once Remained released the music video for their first single “The Great Divide” and are currently touring & spending time in the studio writing material for their next release.
Throughout their careers the members of Once Remained have shared the stage with bands including Karnivool, Cog, Shihad, Something With Numbers, The Snowdroppers and King Parrot. During the course of touring in support of their E.P. Once Remained have played shows with Kingswood and Calling All Cars.
In 2014 Once Remained will focus on delivering more of their trademark hard-hitting shows and will see them head back into the studio to record a follow-up to their debut E.P.
