Sugar Army is an alternative rock band based in Perth, WA, Australia consisting of James Sher, Patrick Mclaughlin and Todd Honey. Benjamin Pooley and Chris Simmons join the band when they perform live, giving an eclecticism and dynamic to Sugar Army that makes both entities vastly different in sound.
Sugar Army's debut album The Parallels Amongst Ourselves was released June 2009 and was critically acclaimed with support extending beyond Australia and to the UK and US college radio. Since then, they have supported huge acts such as Smashing Pumpkins and Interpol and opened the main stage of Big Day Out, an Australian music festival.
Their style is an eclectic palette of alternative rock sounds, forged in reflection and exploration. Their second album Summertime Heavy utilised these themes and was released in 2012 to positive reviews. Their lead single, Hooks for Hands received considerable airplay on Triple J. They described the shift in sound as 'brutally honest' and much more personal than their debut.
Their latest album, Battle came out in 2016.
