AUSTRALIA’S hottest up and coming bands are ready to rock.

The Australian finalists in this year’s Global Battle Of the Bands will musically joust tomorrow night at Mounties.

The competition will see 18 bands, including Sydney trio Raging Waters, perform for a place in the world tournament.

Tony Deveaux, guitarist and vocalist for Raging Waters, said the group was appreciative they had made it this far.

“It’s a big, real competition for bands like us,” he said. “Once you’re in it anything can happen.”

“We would like to be the first Australian band to win it, but even if we don’t, it’s still great exposure.”

The group, including Greg Griffiths on bass and Tony Boyd on drums, has been playing together for seven years, but only recently started to go under the name Raging Waters.

“That describes what our sound is like. It’s like something coming at you,” Mr Deveaux said.

“We’re a little bit different. We play classic rock in a modern way.”

The lead singer and songwriter has written more than 300 songs and hopes to one day get a publishing deal writing for a mainstream company.

For now though, the aim is relatively simple: share the music and rock on.

“All bands are being regulated somehow, but we want to do it our own way. It’s all about freedom.”

Competition prizes include three days recording at Melbourne’s Black Pearl Studios, Labelstate T-shirts, Chuck Taylor Converse products and a trip to the world finals.

The Australian final will be held at Mounties, Mt Pritchard, at 7pm on November 27. Tickets are $20.
