Rock/Punk Party-Starters Drawcard announced their tour and unleashed their new single KIDS last month, and now on the verge of heading out on tour down the East Coast of Australia, they have released the filmclip for the belting track.
The clip is high-energy and up-in-your-face showcases the band’s stage presence, a take-no-prisoners show that doesn’t let up until the last chord is struck, filmed in their rehearsal room and put together by the band and Thomas Coutts.
On the eve of their tour kicking off, Drawcard has been enjoying love from all over – triple j’s Home and Hosed and Short Fast Loud, as well as Triple M’s Homegrown show and being added to US radio station rotation on New Driven Radio and the Oz tour has been touted by Tone Deaf as 1 of 5 Do Not Miss Tours in August.
Drawcard are all about the following: Tasty melodies, killer riffs, catchy choruses and thought provoking lyrics. This means that there are often crazy gyrating bodies on the dancefloor and being thrown across the stage. To sum up – all members in Drawcard have Bachelor’s Degrees in “Tumultuous Partying” and a sheer knack for writing catchy melody laden post punk rock anthems.
‘Kids’ is a cracking song about wishing for simpler times “when we were kids.” It’s an upbeat, nostalgic track that doesn’t let up until the final chord has been struck. Drawcard’s frontman, Paul Durkin’s vocal hook anchors the chorus of the track and defies anyone to get it out of their head.
The tour takes themfrom their Hometown of Maroochydore, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Bendigo.
Proving that they have what it takes time and time again, they have shared the stage with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Unwritten Law, Grinspoon, Guttermouth, Birds of Tokyo, Parkway Drive, Dead Letter Circus, Dallas Frasca, Closure in Moscow and the list goes on! Two singles off their sophomore 5 track EP debuted at No.4 and No.5 in the AMRAP Australian Independent Music Charts and remained in the Top 10 for 3 weeks alongside artists including Children Collide, The Temper Trap and Hilltop Hoods PLUS their debut album was mixed by Sylvia Massy (TOOL, Red Hot Chili Peppers, COG) in California and is distributed nationally in the U.S. and Canada with SONY Red.
Drawcard’s single ‘Kids’ is out now and tickets are on sale now for the ‘Kids’ tour on Monday July 7.
