Australian queer bubblegum punk duo Cry Club enter their “villain era" with their electric sophomore album Spite Will Save Me, out July 2023. The tight 10 tracks further refine their talent for turning frustrations and anger at social issues into anthemic thrash-alongs — and proving they’re one of Australia’s most vital, exciting bands.
Writing Spite Will Save Me across Melbourne’s two years of on-and-off-again lockdowns, the two used the chance to escape their surroundings. Working with producer and Kingswood member Alexander Laksa (Flowerkid, Dallas Woods), the duo were able to geek out about their influences like Nine Inch Nails, Queens of The Stone Age and Gilla Band, and working out how to convert noise and post-punk into pop.
An explosive live act, Cry Club are eager to play Spite Will Save Me to fans, creating environments where fans can thrash through their feelings and embrace their inner emo. Join the club.
