Watch: Clowns - Never Enough
Melbourne punks Clowns cap off their breakout year with a headlining tour and new video.
Australia’s punk scene is alive and well in the hands of rambunctious Melbourne-based outfit Clowns, who have just announced a headlining tour to round out what’s been a massive year for the guys. The hell-raising four-piece have had a breakout 2015 that has seen them rise to punk stardom, kicking it off by releasing the hugely successful Bad Blood, their second full-length, and following it up with relentless touring. The dudes have spent a bunch of time on stages in Australia and Asia, and are currently flying the flag for Australian punk in the US after recently playing SxSW and Riot Fest among other appearances.
The boys are obviously enjoying life on the road, announcing this week that they will again be punishing venues nationwide this October and November, supported by surf-rockers Cosmic Kahuna. And they've also unleashed a new video for single Never Enough, showing us why they’ve earnt the reputation of having one of the most mental live shows going around. Keep your eyes peeled for the dude crowd-surfing in his cock-jocks, not something we’d be particularly keen on endorsing for OH&S reasons, but man, it must feel liberating.
