Catholic Guilt is Brenton Harris (vocals), Dean Gordon (guitar/vocals), Megan Sidwell (guitar/vocals), Ben Caruana (bass) and Michael Condello (drums). The quintet combine elements of punk, alt, folk and rock, resulting in a sound they describe as ‘honest music’. The band released their debut EP, ‘Hymnbook Vol. 1’ independently in 2018 and followed it up in 2020 with ‘This Is What Honesty Sounds Like’ via Wiretap Records. ‘This Is What Honesty Sounds Like’ earned the band national and international airplay across over 130 stations and received widespread acclaim from outlets including Alternative Press, Music Feeds, Brooklyn Vegan, Pop Matters and landed them a coveted triple j Unearthed feature artist spot.
The band built off the success of the release by signing with booking agency Destroy All Lines and playing a run of shows in Australia, including multiple sold-out shows in their hometown of Melbourne. Catholic Guilt has since gone on to release a handful of singles and have appeared on major Australian festivals Full Tilt and Knight and Day as well as touring the East Coast of Australia and play main support with US alt-rock titans Switchfoot, Pure Noise Records act Real Friends and local icons Behind Crimson Eyes, Chasing Ghosts and The Bennies. Catholic Guilt will headline The Tote on November 18 and support Guttermouth (US) in March 2024.
