Damn The Maps


The name, Damn the Maps, was derived from a philosophy shared by all three band members, that people should follow their own maps, their hearts, and not follow what society says is necessary to be accepted. Regardless of race, creed, political influence etc, the band believes that all people should be true to themselves and not true to the social map.
And so the name was established.

Singer/Songwriter/Bass Player Martin Green moved to Melbourne from Auckland, New Zealand, following shows there with a ‘kiwi’ line-up, including supports for some of New Zealand’s top bands including The Datsuns, Head Like A Hole, Stellar* and Tadpole.

Upon his arrival in Australia in March 2003, Martin joined with Australians, Nicholas Riley (Guitar) and Mark Coats (Drums), to establish a new Damn the Maps’ line-up.

Damn the Maps supported Evermore in Melbourne in September 2004 and again in the Victorian towns of Mildura, Belgrave and Mornington in April 2005 during the Evermore national tour.

Many Victorian live shows ensued including festivals such as The Apollo Bay Music Festival, Need for Feed Festival, Venus Bay Festival, and the Maitreya Festival.

The band’s two EP’s which were released in 2005 and 2006 respectively, received radio play in NZ, on Auckland stations BFM and The Rock, Hamilton’s The Generator, and in Australia, on stations such as Triple J, Triple R, and PBS.
Television appearances have included TVNZ’s Good Morning New Zealand.

Now as 2008 takes hold, the band has penned their debut album, much to the delight of an ever-increasing fanbase.
‘Input Output’ is released on VENT/Amphead and is also available digitally through Orchard worldwide, from 26 April 2008.

The album is a showcase of the band’s diversity and of Martin Green’s obvious skill as a songwriter. The album ebbs and flows across the rock/pop genre with hints of influences such as Muse, Coldplay and Radiohead.

Band Members:
Martin 'The Moustache' Green (vocals, bass)
Nick 'Not Entirely' Riley (guitar, vocals)
Huw 'Mad Dog' Elias (drums)
