NEWS: CLAMM release new single ‘Bit Much’, announce second album ‘CARE’ and confirm re-arranged UK and European tour dates

Australian punk trio CLAMM return with the announcement of their second album CARE set for release on 19 August via Meat Machine.  In addition they have released the first single from the album ‘Bit Much’.

This track also heralds the new line-up with Maisie Everett (bass and backing vocals) joining Jack Summers (guitar and vocals) and Mike Harding (drums).

 

Jack Summers says of the track: “It can be a strange thing to focus on your own mental wellbeing while also hearing about the constant horrific events of the world. Bit Much focuses on this dynamic and the overwhelming feeling it can bring.”

CARE follows CLAMMs 2020 debut album Beseech Me and by all accounts it’s bigger, louder and darker than its predecessor with added urgency woven into their dystopian punk power.  Recorded at Rolling Stock and Sound Park Studios it also features Naomi Anzai on synth and saxophonist Anna Gordon.

In Australia the band have played with Amyl & the SniffersThe ChatsCash Savage and the Murlocs.
A UK/Europe tour planned for Jan/Feb this year was cancelled for the usual reasons, but the band will return in August for their first international shows.
