THE HARD ACHES
'Brain Drain' single release & national tour
with special guests Muncie Girls (UK) & The Football Club
Indie-Punk Rock mainstay The Hard Aches are releasing a new single 'BRAIN DRAIN', which will form side A of a split 7" that will be released with UK friends, and all round good people Muncie Girls. Muncie Girls will make their Australian debut as support of The Hard Aches June tour.
'BRAIN DRAIN' picks up from where 2016 EP 'I Freak Out' left off. Lyricisms delving into mental health, identity, as well as singer Ben David questioning his own ambitions, this is a song that is borne from insecurities, through a musical outlet that exists to give him some catharism. "I've never felt so alone, in a room of so many awkward people I know" - David laments, as he seeks to find his place in a world that he struggles to connect with.
Recorded at Holes & Corners Studios in Melbourne with the help of producer Sam Johnson (The Smith Street Band, Camp cope, Bennies) the experience was a tester as they prepare a new album.
Joining The Hard Aches for all dates are Exeter, UKs MUNICE GIRLS, and Melbourne's brightest THE FOOTBALL CLUB.
Muncie Girls released one of the finest indie punk albums of 2016, and were invited to play Greast Escape Festival, SCSW, and tour with bands as diverse as Los Campesinos, Taking Back Sunday and Beach Slang. Their single RESPECT is the b-side to the split 7" available for sale now, and is a real anthem of gender equality, erasing passive tolerance for misogyny.
The Football Club are quickly being regarded as one of hte most promising bands in the country. With their IVY resonating so heavily with an array of new fans, Triple J Unearthed have earmarked them as one to watch in 2017.
'BRAIN DRAIN' is released by Anchorhead. The Adelaide punk lable conceived 6 years ago by drummer Alex Upton which has seen releases by Foley!, The Flying So High-Os, Bec Stevens & more.
