All growing up in the Blue Mountains, the four future members of Cloud Control met at the rehearsals for the Pirates of the Penzance, where a series of random events[citation needed] led them to the green room. They started talking to each other and decided to enter their first “Battle of the Bands”.[1] The band subsequently won, and continued on to record and release their debut self-titled EP in 2008. The single from Cloud Control, “Death Cloud,” was picked up by Australian youth radio station Triple J and received strong airplay. The band were also selected[by whom?] to open for Supergrass on their tour of Australia.

After a string of festival appearances and tours with a variety of Australian bands, the band finally released their debut album, Bliss Release, in 2010. The album has seen the release of two singles – “Gold Canary” and “There’s Nothing in the Water We Can’t Fight”, the latter of which came in at number 18 in the Triple J Hottest 100 of 2010. They recorded the album in house of their producer, Liam Judson.[2]

The band supported Foo Fighters along with You Am I at their 2011 concert for flood relief in Brisbane, Queensland.

On 29 July 2011, the band announced that Bass Player Jeremy Kelshaw had been removed from the band, however at Field Day Festival in London on 6 August 2011 Kelshaw appeared on stage with the band and Heidi announced “Today is a very special day for us… Our bass player is back with us, he’s just come off paternity leave”

On Weezer’s recent tour, the band introduced two new songs. Their new album Dream Cave is nearly ready.
