Trial Kennedy are: Shaun Gionis, Richard Buxton, Stacey Gray, Tim Morrison
DAILY TELEGRAPH: "The MELBOURNE band have been at it since 2002, rocking at the edge of the punk scene but always having a more common touch - anthemic songs that could cross boundaries"
DRUM MEDIA ALBUM REVIEW: "LIVING UNDESIGNED is hardly a second album slump. This is a dense, atmospheric rock album that builds to epic crescendos"
DRUM LIVE REVIEW: "Looked and sounded as fresh as they ever have." "refreshing", "consistently solid rock show"
KILLYOURSTEREO: "Frontman Tim Morrison’s unique vocals are at full power, one of the band’s most defining characteristics, while Stacey Gray’s strong guitars are the driving force. The title track is one of the records most emotional and melodic moments before things take a dark turn on the energetic first single 'Best Of Tomorrow.'"
MUSICFEEDS.COM.AU: "HEARTS, ROOS and LIVING LIFE UNDESIGNED"
The Spotlight Report: "LIVING UNDESIGNED is a great piece of work. Trial Kennedy is one of these bands that you can listen to many times and never get bored"
Lifemusicmedia: While Living Undesigned will take multiple listens, each time is worth it to reach the albums finest moment in a part of the finale, “Arrest Room”. It’s a somber slow movement which would make for a beautiful acoustic B-Side for future EP releases.
BMA MAG: Best of Tomorrow enthrals with its overlapping vocal arrangements and the slower pace of My Own displays the quality of Tim Morrison’s voice. There’s a lot of youthful angst tied up in this collection, as exemplified by Arrest Room with its powerful cries of grief, establishing a spooky, mysterious atmosphere. I loved it!"
The dwarf: "All in all, Living Undesigned is a powerful package and will no doubt keep Trial Kennedy busy well into the near future, so expect the see and hear a lot of this band. Their music speaks for itself."
LANEWAY MAGAZINE: "Despite a long dormant period Trial Kennedy is back with a strong statement and a refreshingly hard and edgy sound."
FASTERLOUDER: "Trial Kennedy are a hard working band that produce some great rock songs, they are also fantastic live, and although Living Undesigned may take a few spins to warm up to, it is certainly worth the time."
