Midnight Juggernauts are a band from Melbourne, Australia composed of Andrew Szekeres, Vincent Vendetta, and Daniel Stricker. The band has been described as anything from 'prog dance meets cosmic film scores', to 'slasher-flick disco' to 'deadpan landscape'. It is hard to define the band's sound as all the instruments are played live through a range of samplers, pads and various acoustic instruments. Following the release of numerous 7" and 12" singles, and limited edition EPs, the band released their debut album Dystopia. After playing festivals and headlining tours worldwide during late 2007-2008, the band finished working on their follow up album 'The Crystal Axis', touring around its release mid-2010 at festivals and headline shows across the globe. The group also runs the label Siberia Records, through which they release their own music and others including Kirin J Callinan and Djanimals.
The band was formed in 2004 by Vincenzi Vendetta and Andrew Szekeres who met in school. They were later joined by Daniel Stricker in late 2006 who has met the two whilst playing in various groups over the years. In early shows the band had many different names and the lyrical content changed from show to show – one time when playing above a Chinese restaurant using the name of items from the menu in the lyrics of a few songs.
