Monday Records is delighted to announce the release of Rock and Roll Weakling on Friday the 18th of July! Leading with the title track which is now available to stream and download (for a very limited time), we’ll be also announcing a national tour in the next few days.
Putting a harder twist on Spookyland’s already signature sound, Rock and Roll Weakling is set to steal the limelight from his previous single The Silly Fucking Thing, with it’s weave of blasting hooks and soft crevices. Intensity is tempered with fragility, while it’s lyrical rawness is mirrored by appropriately rock and roll riffs.
Last month, The Silly Fucking Thing pushed Spookyland into the international spotlight, garnering attention from the likes of Pitchfork and NME, and amassing 25,000 soundcloud plays in the first two week of its release. This success has been fortified locally by an at capacity single launch at Sydney’s FBi Social, considerable radio rotation around the country and a unique take on the single from fellow Sydneysider Rainbow Chan.
Fans can stream the newest single here or below.
