News : Melbourne’s Clowns release new single/music video “Freezing In The Sun”.

By on July 20, 2018

Melbourne based punk outfit, Clowns, have recently released their new single and music video “Freezing In The Sun”. The new single encapsulates heavy riffs and political lyrics of discontent. The lyrics demanding ‘tell me what the fuck I am supposed to do, when I know my taxes are paying for kids to be held in Nauru’, coupled with the dreamy and mesmerising chorus sung by bassist Hanny J.

The music video features appearances from Wayne “Slatts” Slattery of King Parrot, Nikki Brumen of Pagan and comedian Jonathan Schuster, plus band members of Clowns.

Clowns are currently touring across Europe, performing headline shows and appearing at Germany’s prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival. Australian fans will have their opportunity to see the band on home turf this September and October with special guests VOIID. See below for full tour dates.

A punk band not bound by genre, Clowns have built a career spanning 8 years and 3 critically acclaimed albums that blend punk with all flavours between psychedelia, garage, hardcore and power pop. A career that has spawned countless tours the world over and found them playing everywhere between the world’s biggest heavy music festivals to your best mate’s backyard. It’s clear that Clowns are on an unstoppable and heavy loaded freight train of ascendancy with the end of the line in no clear sight, July and August sees the band take on a huge 23 date tour through Europe before heading home for a run of shows around Australia.

Coming along for the ride are hellish femme-shriek punk outfit VOIID to make your face melt and your boyfriend cry.
