Melbourne, Australia- Rock band Press Club released new single ‘I Can Change’, taken from the brilliant upcoming self-produced album, ‘Endless Motion’ due out 14th October 2022 on Hassle Records.

” I Can Change is about constantly being on the road, and needing to slow down/stay still because of the challenges it brings, emotionally and physically – fighting that feeling and wishing you could change cause it all you ever dreamt about. Then BAM, covid comes along, smacks you in the face and takes it all away from you! And obviously you’ll never take it for granted again, if you ever get it back cause it’s everything you ever wanted.” says Natalie Foster (singer)

Watch the video below:

Brave, energetic and expansive, the idea of motion has always been central to the Press Clubethos. Having made music together for 12 years, the Melbourne-based punk rock four-piece reject stagnancy, constantly pushing to change and thrive in a scene that largely stays the same. Endless Motion is the ultimate artistic statement about the past three years – a collective and global struggle that has provided the material and circumstances for Press Club to emerge as one of the most exciting and relevant bands of 2022.

The new single lifted from the record, follows on from previous tracks ‘Eugene’ and ‘Cancelled’, that both received huge support at UK national radio, including:
A BBC Radio 1 Rock Show Rockest Record, plays and support with Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders and Nels Hylton, 6music support with Craig Charles and Iggy Pop, and Radio X support with John Kennedy.

The new album promises equal parts playful indie rock, punk grit and dreamy alt-rock, balancing the anecdotal and extrospective. Across their first two albums – the critical success of the adolescent commentary Late Teens (2018) and the frenetic freedom of Wasted Energy (2019) – Press Club proved themselves to be a thrilling new voice in global DIY punk rock scene. 

The highly anticipated third album couldn’t have been made in more different circumstances than their second, which was written on the road touring and recorded in a six-day window in their calendar. Fun and speed were the order of the day. Plans were in place to record Endless Motion in Berlin in 2020 but when the pandemic shut the world down it offered Press Club a chance to reconsider all their proposed material.

“The album is a culmination of years of downtime and introspection, false starts and disappointments, bushfires and pandemics. Factors that forced us to dig out parts of ourselves to sculpt a body of work that was as uncompromising and raw as our previous releases, but executed with more polish and finesse than we thought ourselves capable of” says drummer Frank Lees of the new album. 

With travel well and truly up and running, Press Club have just returned from three weeks burning across Europe and the UK playing at the likes of Download UK as well as Hurricane and Southside festivals in Germany. October and November will see Press Club take Endless Motion on the road playing across Australia, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Czech and the Netherlands.
