In Fiction were an Australian five-piece melodic rock band from Adelaide.[1]

Having formed in 2005, In Fiction signed to Boomtown Records in 2006 with their debut release The Four Letter Failure[2] and featured as Triple J's "Next Crop" artist[3] as part of AusMusic Month.

When released, The Four Letter Failure landed at number 72 in the Australian ARIA Charts and stayed in the top 100 for five weeks.[1] When Ghost was released, it debuted at number 14, attracting Japanese label Pyropit Records to release an album combining The Four Letter Failure and Ghost.[4]

In Fiction frequently tour Australia with a number of bands, including The Matches, Bodyjar, Behind Crimson Eyes and Kisschasy. In Fiction also play many festival tours including the 2007 Vans Boys Of Summer Tour, both the 2006 and 2007 Boomtown Showdown tours, the 2008 Adelaide Soundwave Festival and 2008 Push Over Festival.[5]

In Fiction's debut album The Forecast was released on 7 June 2008 featuring the single "Liar Liar".[6]

In late October 2008, the band announced that they would be breaking up indefinitely for personal reasons.[7] As of 2009, three new incarnations of In Fiction have emerged from the previous members which are: The Afterparty (Brad), The Fountainhead[8] (Paul, Alistair and Tom) and The Miracle is Now[9][10][11] (Josh).

On 26 June 2010, In Fiction played a reunion show for the grand opening of a new music venue in Light Square, Adelaide.

Another reunion show was also held on 20 August 2011 at Fowlers Live.[12]
