2012-2015: Early years and I Don't Want To Be Anywhere But Here[edit]

Ceres formed in mid-2012 and recorded and released the EP Luck in February 2013. This garnered them enough interest to secure a spot on the Melbourne leg of the 2014 Soundwave Festival. A couple of months later, in April 2014, the band released their debut studio album, I Don't Want to Be Anywhere But Here which was played on triple j.[2]

2016-2018: Drag it Down on You[edit]

Over the next two years, the band worked on their second studio album.[3] In September 2016, the band's second album, Drag it Down on You, was released.

2019: We Are a Team[edit]

Following three single released, Ceres released We Are a Team in April 2019, and it became their band's first charting album, debuting at number 55 on the ARIA Charts.
