Seemingly with contempt for staying still, PRESS CLUB return home from their eight-week national tour with The Smith Street Band to announce their own Australian headline tour. With their newfound love of airport security, tarmac and cheap motels, the band will tour the Eastern seaboard in support of their debut album LATE TEENS and the patronymic fourth single taken from it.
LATE TEENS, the album was written over six weeks when bassist Iain MacRae's house was converted into a temporary song-writing sweatshop where the band wrote forty songs that were distilled into the dozen that make up the track list. Relying upon the experiences of their friends and people they know as subject matter, LATE TEENS thematically approaches displacement, relationships, internal turmoil, gentrification and inequality.
The album was recorded truly live over one week at The Aviary studios, Abbotsford with guitarist, Greg Rietwyk, at the helm. The band used minimal over dubs to create an unadulterated, and as honest record as possible. One of Australia's truly independent bands, PRESS CLUB continue on their unsigned, unbridled romp in 2018.
"It would be easy to pigeonhole the group to a fast-moving punk act, but right from the start, Late Teens proves that there's a whole lot more to Press Club." The Music
"The face-blasting first offering....a raw, but clean, capture of energy and the band's clear no-bullshit approach. What a bloody exciting introduction." Rolling Stone Australia
