BLEEDING KNEES CLUB TEENAGE GIRLS NEWS + SUMMER 2011 AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Fresh-faced surf rats (and of more recent times, globe trotters) Bleeding Knees Club will be returning to Australia for the summer (and the waves) after a triumphant trip to the US (which included shows with Gotye, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Male Bonding etc) and the release of their debut EP ‘Virginity’ in the US and UK.

 

Having hit the scene late last year with the release of their debut EP ‘Virginity’ (through I OH YOU) the Queensland friends quickly won the hearts of many with their catchy and distinctly recognisable single ‘Bad Guys’. With the support of high rotation on national radio stations like Triple J, FBi and 4ZZZ, Bleeding Knees Club hit the road with acts like Wavves, Lightspeed Champion (more on him a little later) and also won the right to play the Big Day Out on the Gold Coast.

 

With murmurs of the friends scratchy pop songs resonating across the globe, Bleeding Knees Club decided to pack up their garage on the Goldie and head overseas where they were quickly embraced by media and show goers everywhere. NME Magazine placed them at #21 in their ‘top 50 best new bands of 2011’, The Guardian blogged them and Dazed & Confused featured them. As tracks floated through the offices of selected record labels it didn’t take long for the boys to be snapped up by Columbia in the UK and IAMSOUND in the US who have just released the EP in their separate territories to killer reviews and love from publications like Rolling Stone, NME and more.

 

That brings us to the newest chapter of the Bleeding Knees Club story. After touring Australia with Dev Hynes (AKA Lightspeed Champion) early on in their career, Bleeding Knees Club decided to drop him an email to see if he might be interested in producing their debut album. Somewhat to their surprise Dev jumped at the opportunity and the Gold Coast bro’s jumped a plane and headed to NYC to record their record. What they emerged with was 12 songs and a 25 minute surf/pop record which they called ‘Nothing To Do’ and is set for release in March 2012.

 

In September 2011, Bleeding Knees Club released the first single to be taken from their debut album – a track called ‘Teenage Girls’. Once againGold Coast dudes hit home with critics and fans alike. Triple J premiered the song to the world and Rolling Stone (USA) hosted the video clip for the very first time which was quickly added to Channel [V] playlist and given MTV Australia’s ‘Just Hatched’ feature.

 

Off the back of Teenage Girls Bleeding Knees Club travelled to the USA for the CMJ conference and absolutely tore it up while sharing the stage with acts like Gotye, Little Red, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Male Bonding.

 

On the eve of the band returning to Australia from their latest successful international adventures we’re now pleased to announce that Bleeding Knees Club will be playing a string of headline club dates and making appearances at some of Australia’s premiere east coast summer festivals.
