ALBUM ‘ENDLESS MOTION’ OUT NOW ON HASSLE RECORDS HERE
ON TOUR IN UK / EUROPE THIS MONTH
“Dense with masterful and meticulous production, employing rich and melodically exhilarating soundscapes without losing a hint of the punky, pub-thrashing energy we already loved them for” – NME
Press Club’s most ambitious and authentic album to date – Beat Magazine
Today marks the release of Press Club’s third album, Endless Motion. the Self produced and highly anticipated album is the ultimate artistic statement about the past three years – a collective and global struggle that has provided the material and circumstances for Press Club to emerge as one of the most exciting and relevant bands of 2022.
Accompanying the album release is a stunning live performance video of title track ‘Endless Motion’ shot by friend and video director Nick Manuell at Melbourne’s iconic Forum Theatre. Comprised of footage taken during the band’s live tracking in the vast, anthemic arena, when Press Club converted the monumental space into a temporary recording studio.
Enriching the performance with takes captured live on the floor of the venue as it sat vacant during the industry crippling pandemic. These takes were used alongside studio recordings and the reverberant tails of Natalie Foster’s vocals at the Forum add an inimitable sheen. The awe inspiring soundscape is equally matched by the sheer beauty of the iconic room. Sitting dormant in it’s blue-washed, chimerical splendour.
Endless Motion couldn’t have been made in more different circumstances than their second album, which was written on the road while touring and recorded in a six-day window in their calendar. Fun and speed were the order of the day. Plans were in place to record Endless Motion in Berlin in 2020 but when the pandemic shut the world down it offered Press Club a chance to reconsider all their proposed material. The name of the album – Endless Motion – emerged naturally from the feeling of being stuck inside but people’s lives moving forward. “In a pandemic sense, it was very much like, everything stopped but time just kept going,” says Natalie. Iain wrote of what those two words mean through the lens of music: “Despite where and how it may appear, music never really stopped. And it is omnipresent, in perpetuity, endless motion.” As for many musicians and fans alike, music was a lifeline to these artists during a turbulent time.
Across their first two albums – the critical success of the adolescent commentary Late Teens (2018) and the frenetic freedom of Wasted Energy (2019) which charted at #4 in the AIR album chart and #15 on the ARIA Australian Album chart – Press Club proved themselves to be a thrilling new voice in the global DIY punk rock scene and that sentiment continues with the latest release.
Lifted from the new album, singles ‘Cancelled’, ‘Eugene’ and ‘I Can Change’ have landed heavy support across Spotify (New Music Friday, Rock Out, All New Punk), Apple (New Music Daily, The New Rock) and on Amazon (Brand New Music). As well as gracing the cover of Spotify’s Local Noise playlist twice in two months. Garnering radio support both at home in Australia and in the UK which has seen play across BBC Radio 1 including landing Radio 1 Rock Show Rockest Record, support at 6 Music with Craig Charles and Iggy Pop, and Radio X support with John Kennedy.
