Northlane Welcome Brendon Padjasek (Ex-Structures) To The Band As Their New Bassist

Northlane have welcomed former Structures frontman Brendon Padjasek to the group as their new bassist/backing vocalist. He will be taking over for Alex Milovic, who exited the band in September.

The band commented:

“Northlane would like to introduce our new member – Brendon Padjasek.

Brendon is one of our oldest and dearest friends we’ve made on the road, and he will be stepping into the role of bassist as well as providing additional vocals.

We met Brendon the very first time Northlane travelled to Canada in 2012. Since then we toured Canada, the USA and Australia together and forged some of our fondest memories from the road. He is a supremely talented musician and was the guitarist and then frontman for one of our favourite acts, STRUCTURES. His technical prowess extends to his work as a studio producer and session musician.

We can’t wait for you all to see Brendon perform with us on the Never Say Die! Tour, Good Things Festival and beyond!”


Bassist Alex Milovic Exits Northlane

Northlane have announced the departure of bassist Alex Milovic. The band’s upcoming tour dates will go on as planned with a new lineup.

Here’s an official statement:

“Throughout the years we have experienced the highest highs and some debilitating lows as a group. Over time priorities can alter, and sometimes people need to make a change for their own personal growth. That moment for change has come for our bass player, Alex, who is leaving Northlane. Alex was a long standing member of Northlane now at his own personal crossroads, and we are parting ways amicably. We support his decision and wish him well. Read his statement below.

‘It is with mixed emotions that I announce I will be stepping down from my role in Northlane. There have been a number of contributing factors over the past year that have led me to make this decision and although it wasn’t an easy decision to make, I feel this is the best thing for me.

Music has always and will always be a huge part in my life and has helped shape the person I am today. I’d like to thank all of our friends, families and fans that have supported myself and Northlane over the years, it has been one hell of a roller coaster ride that could not have been possible without your love and support.

lastly, I’d like to wish the guys in Northlane good luck and say a huge thank you for all the amazing memories we have created, spanning close to a decade. I don’t think any of us thought that when we started this band it would go on to become what it is today. I’m extremely proud of what I have achieved with Northlane. I’m sad to be moving on but also excited for the next chapter in my life.’

We will still be performing all upcoming tour dates on the Never Say Die! Tour and Good Things Festival with a new lineup, which will include one of our oldest and closest friends in music, to be announced shortly.”

Northlane Premiere New Song “Vultures”

Northlane have premiered a new song titled “Vultures.“ You can check that out below, and pre-order a 7” vinyl version (out September 14) HERE.

The band commented:

“We’ve had a relatively quiet year of touring, and while we have enjoyed our time at home we haven’t been able to sit still. This brief respite of tranquillity was invigorating for us and that inspiration led to the creation of Vultures. We returned to our roots and self-produced this song in Western Sydney with the help of some old friends. It was an uncompromising process, nothing is more valuable to any of us than being true to ourselves. We hope you’ll find your own meaning in these words and scream them back at us even louder.”

Northlane To Release New Live Album “Analog Future”

Northlane will release a new live album called “Analog Future” on March 16, via Rise/UNFD. The band said the following about the effort, which was recorded around the world:

“Since Northlane was born, we have never been able to capture the rawness, energy and sound of our live show in a recording, until now. ‘Analog Future’ is the product of a year on the road. We recorded every show in 2017 and collated 10 of our most memorable performances into a live album. Your favourite songs might sound a little different, and you might hear a few mistakes, but that’s live music in it’s realest form. ‘Analog Future’ is Northlane like you’ve never heard us on record before – aggressive, in your face, and right in the room with you.”
