The Grates are a three-piece indie rock band formed in Brisbane in 2002. The original line-up was Patience Hodgson on lead vocals, John Patterson on guitars and backing vocals and Alana Skyring on drums. They were brought to national attention when a demo of their single, "Trampoline" (2004), received airplay on radio station, Triple J. Their first two albums, Gravity Won't Get You High (2006) and Teeth Lost, Hearts Won (2008), both reached the ARIA Albums Chart top 10. Skyring left in 2010 to become a chef and was replaced on drums by Ben Marshall for the third album, Secret Rituals (2011), which reached No. 11. The Grates' fourth album, Dream Team (2014), was recorded with new drummer, Richard Daniell. The band provide energetic and often sold out live shows.
