Surfacing as a live band in August 2014 and releasing their first album Skin just a few months later, Flynn Effect quickly established themselves within their scene as a force to be reckoned with – delivering a refreshing take on alternative rock and a theatrical live show featuring the band’s own self-created automatic lighting system, CO2 and pyrotechnics. Heavily costumed, drowning in LED’s and yielding glowing instruments, Flynn Effect's ambitious live performances have seen the band share the stage with rock and metal royalty, including Lacuna Coil, Wednesday 13, Davey Suicide and Seether, as well as local heavyweights Orpheus Omega, Osaka Punch and Darkcell, and take the stage at the 10th anniversary edition of Progfest in 2019.
In the four years since their inception, self-managed and self-produced (in a bedroom), Flynn Effect have released two studio albums - Skin in 2015 and Obsidian in 2017, followed by the 2018 release of their EP Monument. Positively met by critics and fans alike, the Flynn Effect family slowly began to grow into a loving fanbase. Constantly on the move, the band toured nationally twice and made numerous visits to Melbourne, which eventually led to the city becoming their home.
