Embers is a brutal, free-jazz/grind-noise quartet from Melbourne, Australia. The group is made up of bucketrider members, Adam Simmons (various saxophones), Dave Brown (electric microtonal bass) and Sean Baxter (drum kit and junk) with Globe Unity Orchestra alumni, Kris Wanders (tenor saxophone). Their music is freely improvised jazz-noise with echoes of blasting grind and heavy, free rock. They launch their debut CD on the Heathen Skulls label, Slag-welter, with support from American sound collagist, David Shea, and local noise impresarios, Blarke Bayer and Black Widow featuring Ben Andrews (Agents of Abhorrence/My Disco) and Rob MacManus (Grey Daturas).
