Anthony Mathews (born 20 April 1987) is an Australian drummer and live sound engineer from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Biography[edit]

Anthony started drumming at the age of 13 after seeing Travis Barker play when he snuck into a Blink 182 show in his native Queensland, Australia. Throughout his high school years study took a backseat as he began playing in local punk, jazz and big bands. By the time he finished high school Anthony was teaching drums full-time at his own drumming school in his home town of Ipswich, Queensland. Unfortunately in late 2007, the studio burnt down and was unable to reopen. Although no lives were lost in the fire, the loss of his prized Orange County kit caused him a great deal of grief.

Bands[edit]

From 2004 – 2007 Anthony played in Brisbane band, When Secrets Kill, who were signed to national hardcore label Skull and Bones Records. The band had a strong underground following throughout South East Queensland and supported both national and international touring bands. Anthony's drumming caught the eye of Brisbane Hardcore band Suffer Some More[1] and he was offered the opportunity audition in 2008. After impressing the band, he was offered the drumming spot and Anthony played a large number of supporting and headlining shows with the band across Australia. Anthony played with Suffer Some More until mid-2009 when they decided unanimously that it was time to call it a day. Anthony has played for a number of Australian pop bands including The Veronicas and is currently drumming for Brisbane band Streamer Bendy[2]

Live sound engineering[edit]

Not only is Anthony an accomplished drummer in the punk and hardcore scene within Australia, he is also a well established live sound engineer. Anthony spent two years studying at the South Bank Institute of Technology [3]'Rock School' under Australian rock and roll touring legend Ian 'tails' Taylor. He has an extensive career as a sound engineer touring nationally and internationally with well-known Australian acts Parkway Drive and Small Mercies.[4] He has worked on all of Australia's major festivals such as Big Day Out, Summer field days, Soundwave and Future Music. Anthony worked extensively on co producing albums for Brisbane indie rock band Repeat Offender.[5]
