The social media pages for Home and Away have announced the coming of Lyrik, a rock and roll band that will visit Summer Bay the next week with 4 new characters.
The rock group Lyrik, which consists of lead singer Bob, bassist Eden, lead guitarist Remi, and keyboardist Kirby, will perform for the first time on July 4 in Summer Bay.
The four are Felicity Newman’s (Jacqui Purvis) friends, and they show up as part of Flick’s most recent plan to give Salt (Emily Weir) some much-needed cash after recent financial difficulties forced Mackenzie to put the restaurant up for sale.
In recent episodes, Mackenzie was given a number of proposals by Felicity, including the installation of poker machines and the organization of events. Mac didn’t seem to like any of the suggestions and didn’t think they would help with her mounting debt, but it seems over the next few days she changes her mind.
The band will perform a live music night at Salt later in the week, therefore they will arrive in Summer Bay the following Monday.
She extends them an invitation to stay in the Parata residence, where she has just lately become an official resident, as they have been invited by Flick. The four quickly take control of the home and certainly bring a pile of instruments with them.
No information has been released regarding how Tane (Ethan Browne) and Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) will respond to their newly crowded living space, but the synopsis for the episode airing on July 6th mentions that “The Parata house has been invaded,” suggesting that it may be difficult to accommodate the newcomers.
The upcoming week’s spoilers also allude to conflicts amongst the band members, as “Lyrik’s bandmates face a clash of egos.”
Could everything not be as peaceful as it seems at first?
Rob Mallet, who has been in the films Winners & Losers and House Husbands, plays the lead vocalist Bob.
Rob stated in an interview with The Daily Telegraph in Australia that working on Home and Away was on his bucket list because it is a staple of Australian television.
“I’ve had a blast attempting to win over Summer Bay’s hearts and minds. The remainder of Australia must now receive the same treatment.
“It’s a pleasure to deal with the entire crew there; they are professionals. The show’s continued popularity is hardly surprising.
Stephanie Panozzo performs the role of the bassist for the group, Eden.
After testing positive for Covid, Stephanie was compelled to attend the audition over Zoom and expressed concern about missing out on the part to The Daily Telegraph.
She said, “I did the recall over zoom and thought that was that. “A few days later, as I was recovering from COVID and watching TV with self-pity, my agents FaceTimed me—something they never do—and told me I had landed the part.
“I was beyond thrilled and completely blown away. It was a wonderful and extremely unreal feeling.
Eden is not just Flick’s friend but also Cash’s (Nicholas Cartwright) high school girlfriend, as Nick revealed in a recent CelebTime fan Q&A. After his wild night with Rose (Kirsty Marillier), Cash’s love life was already chaotic, but now that his ex is back in town, things could get even messier.
Will he soon have another secret to hide from Jasmine (Sam Frost)?
Adam Rowland portrays the lead guitarist for the group, Remi Carter.
Shortly after the news broke, Adam said on Instagram, “Cats outta the Bag.. Remi Carter is heading to Summer Bay,” along with the surname of his character.
JR Reyne, who played guest character Emmett Ellison, commented “Yeahhhhhhbrother!!! 🎉🎸🤘“, while Jacqui Purvis wrote “So freakin excited 😍” and Matt Evans, who plays Theo, added “rock n rolllllllllll“.
Angelina Thomson, who portrays Kirby, made the announcement as well as the full name of her character, Kirby Aramoana, on Instagram.
According to spoilers for the Australian edition of the show that airs next Thursday, “the crowd goes wild at Salt,” it appears that the new band is a big hit with the Summer Bay locals.
Earlier this year, in February, Angelina Thomson and Rob Mallett were photographed filming in Sydney’s Palm Beach while perusing a flyer for the live music event at Salt.
Although it is unknown if their music will be able to save Salt, at least some members of the band appear to be planning to remain active long after Felicity’s event.
It appears likely that Kirby, played by Angelina Thomson, will get together with Theo (Matt Evans). Fans have seen the two interacting and holding hands several times while on the Home and Away Location Tour.
For the new couple, things might not go as planned. Theo raises his arms in frustration in a late-March image that shows the couple holding hands outside the Surf Club before Kirby goes away.
Next Monday, July 4th, will mark the premiere of Bob, Kirby, Remi, and Eden in Australia, while Thursday, August 11th will mark their debut in the UK.
