Whether its as simple as playing a show or touring the world with your band. The dream begins here. We have 17 amazing rooms to help energise and inspire your band. All situated right here in Perth, Western Australia.
Our artwork is designed to influence your creativity. It brings the studio to life and helps put you in the right headspace. We brought in some of Perth's most talented artists to make our studios look as good as they sound.
All music and no play sounds a little boring. So we spiced things up and installed basketball rings. It's a great way to blow off some steam, re-focus and have some fun with your band mates. If basketball isn't your thing then take a break and play some classic arcade games like NBA Jam and Streetfighter 2.

In between playing every major festival across the globe; Tame Impala locked down room 3 to prepare for their Sold Out UK 2014 Tour
Room 15 regulars Make Them Suffer are fast becoming one of Australia's most popular Metal acts. Signed to Roadrunner Records the band has just completed another sold out run of shows around the country. They continue to be a big inspiration to the metal community and younger Hen House bands.
Crunching guitars and soaring vocals have made Tired Lion one of Perth's favourite bands. Their tireless work ethic has seen them grow as musicians and we have no doubt this is a band going places.
One of our longest serving regular bands, I, Said The Sparrow released their cracking debut album 'Deathpop' at the end of 2013. Before taking their tunes all over Australia on multiple tours across 2014. Make sure you check out their high energy live show!
More than just The Hen House Studio Manager. Chris Winterburn and his band Graphic Characters are already making some pretty serious noises. Having just signed to Ten To Two Records (Xavier Rudd, Seth Sentrey), they'll drop their debut E.P 'The Finest Hours' nationally before touring at the end of the year. Crunching riffs and super melodic vocals make these guys one of the most exciting bands to come out of The Hen House in a long time. Stay tuned.
