CRYSTALLINES are ecstatic to announce the 'Hammer & Tong' single launch.

Celebrating their long awaited debut single, CRYSTALLINES are poised to tear Carlton's Colour Nightclub to shreds alongside Cat Crawl & Registered Mourner. Bringing their non-stop, prog-rock set, this showcase is not to be missed. With ‘Hammer & Tong’, Naarm/Melbourne sees CRYSTALLINES announce themselves on its thriving, prog-rock scene. Their maiden offering takes the listener on a journey of violent misadventure, set to a rhythm equal parts rip-snorting & relentless.

CRYSTALLINES are proud to be joined by co-conspirators, Cat Crawl & Registered Mourner.

"Cat Crawl are a 90s-inspired alternative band from Naarm. Drawing upon new wave and punk influences, distorted bass-lines and heavy drums are matched with surreal choruses and defiant vocals."

"A heavy rock group founded and grounded in Melbourne, Australia, Registered Mourner seeks to prod the dormant forces that lie beneath-and give rise to-our personal, social and political veneers. With off-kilter harmonic play and a deft cohesion of moving parts, listeners will be artfully nudged off balance; de-centred, cradled in suspense, and carefully re-centred, experiencing emotional pay-offs previously unimagined."

A word from CRYSTALLINES on the venue:

"The privilege of gracing Colour's stage is not lost on us. We are proud to be able to bring our show to a venue with such a strong commitment to inclusivity, diversity and accessibility to all. We want anyone that attends our show to feel completely at ease and comfortable, we can't think of a venue better primed to provide this experience. We hope you enjoy the night and thanks again to the venue team for having us."
