Amphibious were evicted from a local venue at a recent show when confusion arose over the legal drinking age of the band members. Despite all members being above drinking age, onstage comments from singer/guitarist Dan lead management to believe they were actually under 18 years of age and therefore were not allowed in the Hotel, let alone drinking. Dan acknowedgles that his onstage comments of "None of us are 18 yet" and "We had better finish our beers before anyone notices" were in fun. Nevertheless, all was sorted out, and the band is looking forward to a friendly return.
The X Factor! posted 24/11/02
Amphibious had a sweet time at the Jim Beam Planet X show and it was a really action packed evening. The phib were well received by a crowd of over 200 party people, and played for around 30 mins! The show was filmed by Planet X, to be shown on TV worldwide, and they also interviewed Daniel immediately after. AWESOME PHOTOS ARE UP so go and check them out! The other bands were Ginger and Care factor Zero who were both awesome. Punk rockers Care factor Zero were chosen to rock the sydney superdome, and theyll definately put on a Planet X worthy show.

Believe it or not, in a crazy but exciting decision, the NEW LOOK amphibious features twins Dan and Nate up front. Nate's moved from drums to bass guitar. In other exciting news, amphibious have been contacted by numerous independant labels who want to distribute their upcoming EP.

Amphibious just miss out on M-One Festival! posted 25/09/02
The phib just missed out on playing at ANZ Stadium with all the big names! Instead they've received a runners-up Lifehouse pack full of CD's and what not, plus their songs are being played on national radio. So thats the good news! The winning band was a hard rocking band called Cartel, who should do a good job rocking the Stadium.

Moving on! posted 24/09/02
Nate and Dan are very supportive of Garth's decision and are thankful for all the magic he has created over the past 5 years. None of us will forget our first gigs at battle of the bands back in 1998, and all the action between then and now. Garth will always be a part of amphibious, just like all our friends, family and fans who have been there over the years. Nate and Dan are stoked to have Garth's full support to achieve more and more musically. We will be stoked to know we have everyone else's support as well. Thanks everyone.
