These New South Whales Announce New Album, ‘TNSW’

Sydney-based punks These New South Whales have revealed that their third album, TNSW, is coming out on Friday, 18th November. The record follows on from their previous records You Work For Us (2017) and I Just Do What God Tells Me To Do (2019), and promises to be “heavier than ever”.

From the album, These New South Whales have released ‘Rotten Sun’, a new single that is a more than fitting companion to previous single ‘Bending At The Knee’, released earlier this year. Jacked up and bristling with energy, ‘Rotten Sun’ is tailor made for the live TNSW experience.

‘Rotten Sun’ has hints of various influences, from the likes of Parquet Courts to Placebo, with the essential These New South Whales grit running throughout. The single is inspired by a Ross J. Farrar poem, also titled ‘Rotten Sun’. The poem, according to TNSW frontman Jamie Timony, is one he can’t read “without crying”.

“I wanted to regurgitate it in my own way with these lyrics,” he said in a statement. “The sun is slowly eating us all. Everything goes back to the great nothingness from whence it came. And there’s peace in that if we choose.”
