Clowns highly anticipated new record Nature/Nurture is OUT NOW and as

you may have guessed, the gang will not be waiting long to take these tunes

to the stage across Australia and abroad!

Nature/Nurture will be getting it’s first dose of mileage on an

Australian run this June through Hobart, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney,

Newcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Bunbury, sporting a healthy

mixture of some of the biggest venues the band has tackled to date and a

few shows that are sure to be hard to get into and drenched in equal parts

beer and bodily fluid. Coming along for the ride will be Melbourne’s Private

Function, a band under the Damaged wing who have recently been keeping

themselves busy touring with The Bronx in Australia, gearing up for their

first full-length record and selling out pub shows.

Nature/Nurture - the record that has struck Clowns a deal with punk

empire Fat Wreck Chords, sold out of coloured vinyl variants and won them

first prize in a national hot-sauce championship - has been dubbed by Stack

Magazine as “their strongest record yet”. It’s an implosion of punk

soaked garage, hardcore and psychedelia that’s a sonic nod to punk of the

ages, yet with hardly a touch of nostalgia and refreshingly unique. It’s

already gained critical acclaim the world over with Alternative Press in

the US exclusively premiering the record to their 1.2 million Facebook

followers, placing number 1# in the April 2019 Visions chart (Germany’s

leading alternative publication) and is sure to expand ever higher on the

foundations the band have laid through their relentless DIY style touring

that has seen them exhibit everywhere between punk floor shows in the

jungles of Borneo, the world’s biggest heavy music festivals, Marvel

Stadium with Foo Fighters and your best mates backyard.
