Post-Punk's Bench Press Announce New Album & Tour Dates
Some exciting news for fans of Melbourne post-punks Bench Press, as they have just announced that they will release their new album Not The Past, Can’t Be The Future on June 28 via Poison City Records. Soon after, the band will take the album out on tour around Australia and New Zealand in July / August.
The second taste of Not The Past, Can’t Be The Future comes via “Old. Self. Doubt”, which perfectly exemplifies the Bench Press ethos - it's short, sharp, clean and loud. Channeling some Talking Heads and Devo, whilst offering a heavier late-80s contemporary post-punk in a distinct shade of Melbourne garage.
Listen to the new track below:
