Already earmarked as a band to watch by global rock taste-makers, our very own Evol Walks will be even more so with the addition of first class drummer, Jackie Barnes to the lineup. Highly regarded across the globe, Barnes is a relentless driving force, that when put together with Evol Walks, is set to form a formidable powerhouse of rock.

Barnes officially joined the band on 1st June and will kick off with Evol Walks in July for their groundbreaking appearance at one of Europe’s largest music festivals, Woodstock in Poland. The first ever unsigned Australian band to play the festival's main stage, Evol Walks will be blowing away some 750,000 people on 1st August 2015, right up there with the headlining bands, Black Label Society, Within Temptation and Congo Natty. 

Jackie Barnes has been touring professionally for over fourteen years working with some of the biggest names in the business including Keith Urban, Steve Van Zandt, Diesel, Richard Fortus, Jonathan Cain, Joe Bonamassa, Cold Chisel, The Dead Daisies, Neal Schon and of course, his father Jimmy Barnes.

I am very happy to be joining Evol Walks. They are an exciting and hungry young rock band on the rise and I look forward to bringing some of my experience and musicality to the group. See you on the road!
— Jackie Barnes

Formed in Australia and now based in Los Angeles, these quintessential Aussie rockers have spent the past twelve months in Hollywood California, recording their debut EP with award-winning producer Brian Howes (Airbourne, Hinder, Simple Plan, Daughtry). Hot on the heels from Woodstock and with Barnes on board, Evol Walks will hit home shores for an Australian tour to launch the EP, including a headlining slot at Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest, September 19th.

We couldn’t be more pumped about Jackie joining the lineup. There’ll be no stopping us now. Jackie is the kick-arse drummer we’ve been looking for to punch out the hard, heart thumping beats that make our brand of rock.
