Signing to California based Wiretap Records recently, Catholic Guilt have now upped their street cred and are set to be one to watch for the end of 2020 and into 2021. Their new EP ‘This is What Honesty Sounds Like’ will be out this August through Wiretap, and will herald a world beating partnership.
With a sound and passion that has all the punk ideology of the last 40 years, wrapped up in brand new melodic, alt/folk, and rock over jacket. watch out Frank Turner, there are new kids on the block come to join the party.
Fresh off the success of “The Awful Truth” and having their now-iconic “Lucy Furr” shirt BANNED from several schools, workplaces and churches (yes, really) Catholic Guilt keeps the momentum going with the follow-up single “Song of the Renter.” A distinctly Australian flavoured rocker with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a defiant punk rock spirit which debuted on Triple J’s Short.Fast.Loud, before finding favour with the likes of Richard Kingsmill (“The confidence and vision behind this band is what continues to draw me in. They’re doing their influences proud.”), Declan Byrne (“This is so specific but this song takes me to that you am I gig in the mint from like 2006, I think I saw it on J TV. People were dressed up from the convict era and it was a big love-in. This feels like that with the big singalong and the relatable af lyrics”), Sally Coleman (“I’m new to the CG train but toot toot mutha flippas, I’m all aboard”) and the man with a name that became a meme, Max Quinn (I’m really growing to admire this band”)
The single launch saw the band pack out Bombay Rock in Brunswick, with the accompanying video debuting via Music Feeds in February 2020. Having shared the stage with the likes of Danny Worsnop (UK), The Bennies, He Is We (USA), The Bottlers, Chasing Ghosts + more, Catholic Guilt are ready to take on the world
