We are so stoked to announce that @Benny Pockets has joined the band as our permanent groovemaster!
We were very lucky that he was available to come in and jam with us – we all felt that undeniable chemistry and we clicked pretty much straight away.
After Mikey’s departure we weren’t sure if we could find someone who could fill his shoes, both as a drummer and as a friend. But those doubts were erased immediately and we’re blown away by Benny’s passion, dedication and professionalism.
We’re excited about what we’re planning for 2013 and big things are on the horizon!
Much love xoxo
Hey everyone, we have some sad news to announce; unfortunately Mike has decided to leave the band. We fully support whatever he chooses to pursue next and he’ll always be part of the family no matter what.
“Hi all, I want to take this opportunity to announce my departure from Aural Window. It’s hard to keep doing something when your head is somewhere else. Sometimes the passion leaves you and then it’s all over. My time spent with the band has been some of the best years of my musical life, from playing shows, recording, touring America and Australia… I’ve done it all and with the best bunch of people possible. Sheena, Aki, Matt and Glen: thank you for sharing this with me, hold you guys dear to my heart always will.
Thanks to all the friends, family, fans and many bands that I’ve played with for all your support…
Aural Window ROCKS
‘Stones & Sounds’ is out on iTunes everywhere November 21, 2012.
You have been asking for news about the EP for months now, and we feel that it is time to spill some info about what we CAN tell you!
The EP is titled ‘Candlelight’ – and there will be five tracks.
And the tracklisting will be…..
1. Stones & Sounds
2. An Eye For An Eye
3. Candlelight in Georgia
4. Mirrors Of You
We recorded this EP at Sydney’s Electric Sun Studios, with Dave Petrovic and Shane Edwards who have been the best mentors a band could ask for. They opened our eyes to new ways of crafting music, and have been so generous with their time and friendship.
Under their guidance, we had our songs taken apart, put together and taken apart again just to build from ground up some more to make sure we really were producing something truly amazing.
We are seriously so proud of this record and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
At this point we don’t have a set date for the release of the full EP, but we’ll let you know the moment we have news. We will, however, be touring extensively next year and we will try our best to hit regions we have never been before. So tweet/facebook/email us if you wanna see us in your city!
The first single ‘Stones & Sounds’ will be out along with a video next month….or latest by October. It’s a fun, energetic track that fully encapsulates the intense happiness we feel when we’re doing what we love most – making and playing music! We know you’ll love the song and would appreciate all of your likes and shares and tweets when it comes out!
There will be single launch shows in November for Melbourne and Sydney and we hope to catch you then. Because we seriously missed all of you.

We are so stoked to announce that our drummer Mike has been picked up by Australian Drum Supply to endorse TRX cymbals and Corsair drumsticks. We are all super proud and the new gear is awesome – can’t wait to show them off at our 2012 shows!
Our next show sees us supporting one of Australia’s biggest bands, The Getaway Plan, at the Ferntree Gully Hotel on Friday March 16.
