Testeagles were 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 Lawn.

Brief history[edit]

Testeagles first EP was recorded with an independent record label called DEF Records, but when they were discovered by Sony they launched to fame with the song "Turn That Shit Up", the first single from their debut top 40 album Non Comprehendus,[1] which was also featured in 66th Spot on Triple J's Hottest 100 for 1999.[2] The album also featured the tracks "Underdog" and "Like No Other".

Due to label difficulties, the Testeagles parted ways with Sony & the independent label Krell.

Testeagles are regulars at the Big Day Out festival, and last appeared in Adelaide in 2005.

The last Testeagles performance was at the Hi-Fi Bar in Melbourne supporting Mammal on June 21, 2008.
