Hornet are a high energy, guitar-driven rock group, laying down a retro rock-influenced sound with a modern twist. Hornet′s successful style is simple – combining infectious tunes that girls love to dance to, with in-your-face rock. Blowing the roof off every room east-coast Australia has to offer for the best part of a decade, Hornet have released 5 albums under their original music moniker The Humm, experienced 3 top 10 singles in the Australian charts, and sold in excess of 10,000 units nationally.
They′ve headlined the Establishment in Sydney, sold out 8 consecutive nights during the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and toured with Midnight Oil, Divinyls, Hoodoo Gurus and Baby Animals, and in April 2008 Rod Stewart. The band gained exposure on numerous television programs in Australia including Rage, Video Hits, MTV, Channel V and Good Morning Australia. The band also came to party when the Newcastle Knights required a band to deliver their theme song It′s More Than A Game.
