Today, Drown This City are giving the world the filmclip for their new single, BEND/BREAK. The clip (created by Sink or Swim Productions) features the band and vocalist Alex Reade venturing through urban settings in their hometown Melbourne and finds them eventually back at a rehearsal room where the final breakdown of the brutal track takes place with them performing and throwing everything they have at the song.
Bend/Break got its radio premiere on triple j’s Short Fast Loud a few weeks ago and has been getting nothing but love everywhere since, and is the reason for Drown This City’s upcoming headline tour alongside Tasmania’s Save the Clock Tower – and today they are announcing the local supports on an already epic tour.
The tour, presented by Hysteria Mag, Chase Music and Bear Parts Music, will see Advocates and BLKLST opening in Melbourne at Worker’s Club, Stateside and Skies Collide in Brisbane at Crowbar, Sydney‘s Factory Floor gets We May Fall and Our Anchored Hearts, Falcifer and Down WIth the Ship at Adelaide‘s Enigma Bar, Launceston‘s Club 54 gets Cardinels and Majula and Hobart’s Brisbane Hotel sees Cardinels and Eloraine opening up.
The huge track (mixed by Circles’ Ted Furuhashi) is out now in online outlets and is the first new music since their debut EP ‘False Idols’ dropped in mid-2016 and has featured on Spotify Australia’s Homegrown and Heavy playlist since appearing online.
Drown This City are part of a new breed of heavy post-hardcore music – determined, focused, angry – and with all the firepower in their arsenal to make the requisite noise and calamity. This is a band who, within their first 12 months of being together – put out their widely-praised debut 5-track EP False Idols, sold out their first live show ever at Workers Club in Melbourne, were invited to play Rolling Stone’s Live Lodge event series, toured nationally with Falling in Reverse, supported Lacuna Coil and Capture the Crown, signed to Bear Parts Music for Management and were invited to play alongside bands like Violent Soho, Northlane, Thy Art is Murder, Polaris and more at 2017 UNIFY GATHERING Festival in Regional Victoria in January.
Drown This City have turned heads in their short time together and things are only building for them with new music on the way; now handing over production duties to Ted Furuhashi of Circles. DTC set themselves apart through the intense and impassioned delivery of firebrand front-woman Alex Reade. Her vocals are both brutal and beautiful at the same time and skilfully switches from insane, flesh-ripping screams to soaringly melodic passages in the blink of an eye.
Single ‘Bend/Break’ is out now in iTunes, Spotify and all good online stores and tickets are on sale for the tour in July at drownthiscity.com and venue ticket outlets.
