Aussies Abroad: Melbourne’s Press Club set to dominate the UK and Europe with another massive tour

With their new album Wasted Energy due out on Friday, Melbourne’s Press Club are hitting the road for their biggest ever tour of the UK and Europe. And the latest single from the anticipated record also just hit the airwaves – the fantastic “New Years Eve”.

Wasted Energy is the follow up to the band’s debut, Late Teens. On it, you’ll be able to experience the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the thick guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, and the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. Pre-order it now on Bandcamp.

The release will see the band perform at Reading & Leeds Festivals, and Reeperbahn in Germany. Alongside a mountain of dates. And this isn’t even their first tour of that region for the year! They group sold out shows in London, Zurich and Edinburgh earlier this year, and were spotted at festivals like Manchester Punk Festival, Liverpool Sounds City, The Great Escape and Belgium’s Groezrock.
