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 new debut album LATE TEENS ad the patronymic fourth single taken from it.
'Late Teens' is paired with a music video comprised of footage of Australia. From desert to cane fields, The Enmore to Gracetown. It was captured entirely on their most recent tour of the country and made by the band themselves in the back seat of vans and airport gate lounges.
LATE TEENS, the album, was recorded 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 written truly live over one week at The Aviary Studios, Abbotsford with guitarist. Greg Rietwyk, at the helm. The band used minimal overdubs to create an unadulterated and as honest record as possible.
