The Testeagles are a three-piece rock band formed in Adelaide, South Australia in 1994. The band is made up of the brothers, Matty (guitar/vocals) & Ady Matt (drums) alongside D (bass/vocals), who replaced their original bass player Dean, who left the band after their van caught on fire & exploded after a fuel leak while on tour.
They were launched to fame with the song Turn That Shit Up, the first single from their debut Top 40 album Non Comprehendus. The album also featured the top 40 tracks Underdog and Like No Other.
The Testeagles were pioneers of incorporating triggered samples into their music (inspired by the industrial band Ministry), and they rose from a small garage band, to a huge Sony success overnight with their first album!
Due to label difficulties, the Testeagles parted ways with Sony & the independent label Krell.
The Testeagles are regulars at the Big Day Out festival, and last appeared in Adelaide in 2005. The band still has a huge fanbase Australia wide, and continues to play venues across the country on a regular basis.
