Blasting through your speakers with a fist-pumping blend of catchy hooks, punchy lyricism and exhilarating riffs, Gold Coast quintet Fake News have honed an unabashed and expressive brand of modern punk rock.

The Queensland outfit have cut their teeth supporting some of punk’s iconic names, from Lagwagon to Pennywise, Darko to A Wilhelm Scream and their star continued to rise with the release of 2021 debut LP Everyday Warrior.

The record documents the highs and lows of modern life with a relatable narrative and an unerringly grounded delivery. Lead single “Checking In” and boisterous anthem “Broken Bones” led the way, with contemporary pop-punk intertwining with nods to some of the 90’s finest purveyors of the genre.

2023 EP Take Me Away was a fitting follow up, as the band continued to fine tune their infectious combination of urgent and melodic, winning over alternative music fans the width and breadth of Australia and beyond.

“Radio” is the third and final single from the band’s upcoming EP. Building on fist-pumping anthem “Moving On” and the defiant “Not Giving Up”, the new song is is adorned with heart and abundant with melody, an infectious and moreish brand of modern punk, showing the genre is as relatable as it has ever been.

Time & Place is set for release on May 29th.
