Clowns Release New Single ‘Bisexual Awakening’, Announce Album & Tour

Aussie punk rapscallions Clowns have dropped the motherlode, announcing a new album, new tour and dropping a new single to boot.

Dubbed ENDLESS, the band’s fifth studio album will arrive on Friday, 20th October, which just so happens to be when their six-date Aussie album tour kicks off in Melbourne, before winding its way through Adelaide, Sydney, Perth, Alice Springs and Brisbane.

This big announcement comes punctuated with our second taste of Clowns’ new LP in the form of fresh single ‘Bisexual Awakening’, a punchy 1.49 minute slice of aggro hardcore-punk goodness. Lyrically, the track draws inspiration from singer Stevie’s personal journey of sexual exploration and self-discovery.

“Over the years, I’ve come to fully realise the multi-dimensionality of my sexuality,” Stevie said in a press statement.

“I was inspired to write a punk song that celebrates the support and community I found during moments of self-discovery in our classic tongue-in-cheek way. Plus, I wanted to see what would happen if I wrote a song about fucking people’s dads.”

You can take the cheeky track for a spin above, or peep Clowns’ full tour itinerary down below.
