A few months on from previous single Blackhole, Fripps & Fripps are gearing up for the release of their debut full-length BIG MASSIVE (out May 24) with the record’s lead single, Boredom, that we’re stoked to be premiering on Pilerats today.

Opening with some mellow guitar arpeggios, Boredom does NOT live up to its namesake with the full rhythm section hitting just a few seconds later with a tension building leadup to the melodic verses on this addictive upper tempo jangly slice of indie rock.

Speaking on their new single the band explains “‘Boredom’ is one of the first tunes we wrote and embodies the bands energetic and youthful roots. We wrote the majority of this album when we were living together in Sydney and whilst the band has faced its challenges over the years, we have always embodied fun and humour throughout our releases. ‘Boredom’ is a nod to the old and the new fans out there and we hope you love it as much as we love you.“

New fans are sure to be made and old fans are sure to be stoked with BIG MASSIVE, an album the band has been working on for the last fours years in various locations around Sydney and Melbourne. To celebrate the release of BIG MASSIVE, Fripps & Fripps will be playing a handful of East Coast shows this June and July - see below for all dates and get a dose of Boredom:
