Band information

Lump was a modern hard rock band from the Gold Coast that consolidated around Skenie, the former vocalist for The Poor and three ex-Blackseed members in Jackman, Williams and Hansen. The band's style encompassed a broad and catchy hard rock base with echoes of the likes of Alice in Chains.

Lump's first EP "Here I Am" surfaced in mid-2004 and peaked as high as #5 on the independent AIR music chart and they were added to the bill of the Gold Coast leg of the 2005 Big Day Out. Paper Skin was released the following May and the band supported Fozzy before appearing at the Taste of Chaos festival. 2006 was another busy year as Lump opened for Black Label Society and played shows with Shihad and The Screaming Jets.

In 2007, Lump again played at the Big Day Out before completing their second album Choose Your Weapon. They also supported Helmet. After Skenie and Hansen left to reform The Poor, the rest of the band formed Electric Horse with the Brown brothers from Sunk Loto.
