The Go Set are a five-piece punk rock band formed in 2002 and is built around founding member and main songwriter Justin Keenan. The band was formed after Justin's previous punk band Eddie Would Go. Since 2002 the band has released six albums, consistently toured Australia as well as embarking on regular tours of the UK, Europe, New Zealand and Japan. The group's main style is based around punk rock with strong undertones of folk punk and Celtic punk with the use of traditional folk instruments like mandolin, bagpipes and accordion in the music.
