CLOWNS embody the carefree, kick-around attitude that helped make Australian guitar music a worldwide fascination. Their rapid-fire 2013 debut album 'I'm Not Right' was labelled 'savage','sharp' and a 'full on onslaught.' Fast forward twelve months and Clowns have completed a tough touring apprenticeship with some of the nation's greats; Hard Ons, The Meanies, Frenzal Rhomb, Cosmic Psychos and more.
'Bad Blood' is Clowns latest destructive offering, written amongst the suburban jungle of Cheltenham (where the band grew up) in a complex that houses a bakery, a cattery and a morgue, right across the road from a cemetery. Recorded at at St.Kilda's lauded Hot House Studios with Craig Harnath and Jeremy Giddings using their famous Neve desk and a truckload of vintage and boutique gear, the production is rich, raw and dirty. Urgent but natural. Reflective of the band's can-do DIY approach and go hard or go home attitude.
