New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Ceres.

Ceres’ infectious anthemic songs combined with endless enthusiasm and unmistakably Australian likability has resulted in the Melbourne quartet becoming much loved by critics and punters alike.  Cutting their teeth playing sweaty house shows and packed weeknight basement slots, Ceres quickly found themselves becoming a favourite among  Australia’s favourite bands (!) and have toured with Luca Brasi, The Smith Street Band, and good mates Violent Soho.

The debut release ‘Luck’ overflowed with an infectious youthful vivacity of punk-meets-emo-rock sound, then debut album ‘I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here’ was greeted by a chorus of critical acclaim. Next came their ‘Selfish Prick’ EP and ‘Ceres Is For Lovers’ single.

Their knack for genius melodies and heartfelt tales of lost love is on display in bold strokes across their second album, ‘Drag It Down On You’, written carefully over two years amidst tours, travel, and personal changes, second LP ‘Drag It Down On You’ was recorded across what the band call “one long, funny, emotional, frustrating, incredible, life-affirming” fortnight and there’s an instantly nostalgic quality to this volume of songs. 

‘Drag It Down On You’ engineering and mixing duties were handled by Aaron Dobbs (who produced I Don’t Want to Be Anywhere But Here), and the popular Alan Douches (Brand New, Cloud Nothings, Mono) of NYC’s West West Side mastered the album.  

With a freshly inked deal with Cooking Vinyl Australia, the home to a roster of perfectly complimentary contemporaries such as Modern Baseball, PUP, Basement, Pinegrove and Beach Slang, the band’s bond with Cooking Vinyl MD and former triple j host Stu Harvey was forged through his enthusiasm and support for the act since their very first release. 

‘A fun, joyous, and remarkable listen’ - Tone Deaf

'Full to the brim with poppy hooks and alt-rock effervescence’ - Beat Magazine.

Ceres Release New Single & Announce East Coast Tour

It’s not every day a band releases a love song inspired by a visit to a framing shop in Abbotsford, but for Ceres frontman Tom Lanyon it was just what he needed to break a year-long bout of writer’s block.   “My girlfriend lost her parents,” explains the singer-guitarist, “and her dad was named Viv. He was an artist, and she had all these little sketches of his which I got framed. There were eight pictures, little A4 frames, and when...
