RIP dear Louie

It is with great sadness to say that we have lost our dearest Louie the drummer.

Our deepest sympathies and condolences to Louie’s family.

Life will never be the same.

Online Auslan interpreted performance coming soon to Lockdown Town!

Due to extended Victorian COVID restrictions, we’re unable to perform LIVE at the Flow festival with an Auslan interpreter.

You can however register free to the festival which will be online and catch some Auslan interpreted SuburbanProphets shows and videos. Just click here for details and free registration. There’s a heap of creative Deaf artists showcasing their work also.

How does a Rock ‘n’ Roll band perform to a Deaf or hard of hearing audience?

Check out the upcoming online Flow Festival here. FLOW festival will deliver a vibrant and unique festival of Deaf Arts by the Australian Deaf Community from 18th to 21st September 2021 online. It will showcase Auslan, Australian Sign Language through many different artistic forms

Well, we have done this before back in 2016. Here’s a quote from The Guardian (14/12/2016)

When Suburban Prophets come on, the evening kicks into gear – the hard and dark rock band have turned the bass up to 11. The buzz is so strong it thrums through the air and lands in the collarbone; even the cider bottle in my hand is vibrating. This is music for the deaf: vibration piped right into the bones, bypassing the ears.






We’re back

Our first gig for more than 12 months is this Friday 26th March at Mr Boogie Man Bar Melbourne with good mates The Pharaohs and Half n Half.  For fans, friends and family from other parts of the world, we hope you’re staying safe and well.

Gigs cancelled until further notice

Howdy stomp rockers, due to the current pandemic, all Suburban Prophets gigs are cancelled until further notice. This includes the upcoming PAVE Funfest event. Stay safe everyone, follow all recommended health protocols and we’ll be back later in the year with new music and gigs!

In the meantime, you can still hear our tunes on

Suburban Prophets were more than happy to play a fire charity fundraiser gig in Frankston. Great to lots of bands contributing to raising money at other fire benefit events also.

It’s been a while

Yep we know, it’s been 6 months since our last gig. We’re back though at Melbourne’s rock institution ‘The Tote.’ Joining us again on bass is the ever likable Darren McMurrty (The Dead Pharaohs). We’re kicking off the night (September 4th) at 8.30. James Griffin and then Urban Guerillas (Sydney) will be finishing off the evening. Hope to see some of you peeps there.

2019 We’re back!

After a nice warm up gig at The Tote last week with fill in bass player Darren from The Dead Pharaohs, we’re off and running. It’s the Vineyard tonight, one of the jewels of St Kilda.

We had our single launch at the Central Club Hotel with a cranking PA 😉
