Lazertits/Swim Team Split 7"!

We are stoked to announce that we're releasing a split 7" by two of our favourite local bands, best-music mates Lazertits and Swim Team!

The first song to come out is Lazertits' ‘Lil' Sister’ - we reckon it offers three minutes of sweet relief from a society filled with patriarchal,
hetero-normative bullshit. Melodic, interweaving riffs lead you down a slippery path into a chorus
imbued with all the fist-punching elation of early 90s alt-rock anthems. It’s the sonic equivalent of
hugging your mates at a gig and telling them everything is going to be ok.

Turn it up loud, wind your windows down and sing along! 


The Wet Lips LP has arrived!

Boxes of the Wet Lips vinyl arrived yesterday, looking fantastic with Ashley Ronning's artwork printed on thick, shiny covers and sounding excellent thanks to the handiwork of Paul Maybury, Casey Rice and pure German pressing plant efficiency. It took a lot of persuading and a little force for Amanda to prise them from Grace's cold bony hands after she spent the night cradling them and rocking back and forth but you can find them in stores in Melbourne today and around the country next week. Enjoy! 

Wet Lips debut self-titled LP out June 30

After 5 long years, Wet Lips' debut LP is ready in all it's punk rock glory. Out June 30, on Hysterical Records and up for pre-order now

Listen to Singles "Can't Take It Anymore" and "Here If You Need":
