Gig of the Week: Bleeding Knees Club


Bring your Bandaids – Aussie garage-punk hurricane Bleeding Knees Club hits The Newport Friday 30 November

Local garage-punk barnstormers Bleeding Knees Club are touring nationwide and hitting Fremantle at The Newport Hotel on Friday 30 November to unveil their new album “Fade The Hammer”. Restless and revolutionary, the record brings the heat across eleven songs of pummelling garage-rock, nervy punk and candy-coated shoegaze that frothed: “Hits the reset button with a fresh line-up and a fresh take on what the original pairing did best – making noise about the things that excite and irk them.”

Bleeding Knees Club are back from a breakneck European tour that saw them play 13 shows kicking off at Madrid’s GetMAD! Festival alongside Amyl & The Sniffers, No Age, Shannon & The Clams. El Quinto Beatle hailed Bleeding Knees Club’s performance as a “carefree and youthful punk hurricane”, noting “the image of singer (Alex) vomiting in the middle of the stage is probably one of the most punk of the whole festival.”

Stepping up with a storming album to match their live reputation, “Fade The Hammer” is a world-class record that the band can’t wait fans to take on the road across Australia. Alex says of the title, “It’s about that urge to fade out all the things hammering you down.” Garage-psych crackerjacks, Crocodylus, are set to provide some equally incredible hand-picked openers as special guests on the tour. Don’t miss the chance to catch two of Australia’s most rambunctious bands together live at the Newport!
