The 7-piece released their debut album, Different Beings Being Different via Domestic La La in May. It’s available to stream/download, and also buy on limited vinyl here. The band’s debut showcases frontman Reverend Ray’s gravelly and raw vocals, accompanied by thrashy guitars. The new LP has been described as “vocals loud and livid over a battlefield of jagged punk hooks, with a sharp balance of SoCal punk rock and scorching Australiana.” It has already gained over 1.2 million streams on Spotify, and 150k streams on Apple Music. The album features latest single Stuck On You. The video sees the band wake up after a heavy night, and head off to their various day jobs combined with flashbacks from the night before. Stuck On You has
received great support from Spotify, and is currently on the Punk Unleashed (35k followers) playlist. Watch the video here:
