History

Sons of Innocence is an Australian-based scrap metal band from Adelaide, South Australia, formed in 2017. The band consists of five members: Steve Murphy as lead vocalist, Matthew Dale on lead guitar, James Andonopoulos on rhythm guitar, Carmelo Petrilli on drums and Jason Stacey on bass guitar. The band's biggest influences include Marilyn Manson, The Beatles, Wednesday 13, Cradle of Filth and Avenged Sevenfold, just to name a few.[3][4]

The band's sound varies from Hard Rock to Metal and even has some hints of Black Metal. Sons of Innocence first began as a songwriting duo with Steve Murphy writing a majority of the lyrics and rhythm guitar and Matthew Dale writing the lead guitar and drum parts. The duo went under the name of Nautical Twilight and recorded a demo album in 2012.[5][6]

Sons of Innocence went through several members before finally settling on Carmelo Petrilli, James Andonopoulos and Jason Stacey to fill the void.[7][8]

In September 2019 the band released their first "official" single Asylum onto all music platforms and followed up in October with another single release which was March of the Monarchs.[9][10]

The band is currently in the process of recording their first album, which is set for a projected release of 2020.[11][12]

Formation of Nautical Twilight and Demo Releases (2012–2016)

In 2012 Steve Murphy and Matthew Dale came together and starting demo recordings of what would become a part of the Sons of Innocence's current lineup. Steve had much inspiration and a few songs already done from his previous band Faith In Decay. Steve had written out the lyrics and the arrangements for most of the songs, and when Matthew came along he used his experience to assist arranging the drums for these songs. Together they worked on the guitars and bass for the demo recordings. Matthew brought a lighter and experimental side to these demos from his previous band Black Knight.[13][14]

Sons of Innocence and Official Releases (2017–2020)

In late 2017 Steve and Matthew were ready and in need of getting a bassist, guitarist and drummer to official form the band for professional recordings and gigs. They first got their friend Nick Boot to take up the bass role in the band. In early December, after trying a few guitarists and drummers, the current three-man band came across the guitar and drum duo Carmelo Petrilli and James Andonopoulos. On the night of the tryout, Carmelo and James were accepted as fitting for their roles in the band, and from then onwards this was to be the five-man Sons of Innocence lineup.[15]

In 2018 the band starting recording a full album demo inhouse which incorporated Sunset Rehearsal Studios, where a majority of the previous were demos were recorded again. The band only released two demo singles again from this album, being "Cheated & Defeated" and "Haunted". The remainder of the album was never officially released. A rare limited run of CDs were released only to promoters and venues of the new demo releases.

On 24 January 2019 the band recorded their full set as a live studio demo with Graham Dicker; the demo is being saved for a future release, and another fact for that day was that it was hottest day on Adelaide's record books at 46.6 °C.[16]

In February 2019 the band was in search of a new bass guitarist as Nick Boot parted from the band on 24 February due to multiple reasons. The band was in search of a new bass guitarist, and in no time found Jason Stacey in March 2019. Since then Jason has filled previous bassist Nick Boot's spot on bass and backing vocals. [17]

From September 2019 the Sons of Innocence have been working with Andy Kite from Against The Grain recording studio to get their first official singles recorded, mixed and mastered. On 16 September 2019 the band released "Asylum", their first official single as a band. Asylum was a brand-new song only written in 2019. Following "Asylum", in October the band released another single titled "March of the Monarchs", which was another brand-new song written in 2019. The band is set to release one of the original demo songs "Cheated and Defeated" in early January, which got recorded in November with Against The Grain Studio. The band plan to release an EP with the previously released singles and an intro track, as the band plans to release an album by the end of 2020.[18]

On January the 18th 2020 the Sons of Innocence released their EP "Formaldehyde" to media platforms, it contains the following songs in order; "March of the Monarchs", "Cheated Not Defeated", "Dark Angel" and "Asylum".[19]
