These New South Whales today share their new video for ‘Changes’, the final single to come from the band’s explosive third album, TNSW, which was released on Nov 18 via Damaged Records and debuted at #9 across ARIA’s Australian Album Chart and #4 on the Vinyl Charts late last week.
The ‘Changes’ video details the band across an intimate run of celebratory release weekend shows and record store signings across Brisbane/Meanjin, Sydney/Eora and Melbourne/Naarm at beloved local venues and stores including Felons Barrel Hall, Jet Black Cat Music, Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice and Record Paradise. WATCH IT HERE.
Capturing the madness was director, producer and editor Ben Timony who shares, “We didn’t want the video for Changes to be a classic tour video with road signs, airports and Maccas, rather a celebration of the album launch by only showing the intimate live sets and the band connecting with their fans. It was a magic 3 days.”
Speaking to the excitement and fervour of the shows, lead vocalist Jamie Timony adds, “Playing these intimate shows on album release weekend was a career highlight for us. So good to see the album connecting and a real honor to meet our audience on the road. Ben captured the energy of the weekend perfectly on his little handicam. Huge shoutout to all the crew that turned up and came through!”
‘Changes’ is the latest single to come from the TNSW LP. The record marks a refined new era for the band, their most sophisticated body of work yet: a 14-track tome of barrelling punk rock that polishes its heavier moments – heavier than ever – with sing-along choruses, sharp arrangements, and plenty of trademark irony and self-awareness. For every ’90s alternative reference, there’s a blast beat; for every big radio moment, a cursed instrumental aside.
Including previously released singles ‘Under the Pressure’, ‘Rotten Sun’, ‘Bending at the Knee‘, the latest record finds the quartet leveling up immeasurably, it’s already received support across The FADER, DIY, NME, The Line of Best Fit, and MOJO, the latter of whom wrote in their 4/5 review of the record that “it’s not even funny how comprehensively they kick the ass of most other contemporary punk-leaning ensembles.”
These New South Whales will be heading on their previously announced Australian tour of the record in March – April 2023. Pre-sale access runs live today HERE, with general on-sale tickets available from December 1. Find all tour dates and ticketing info below.
With plans to tour widely in the new year and season three of their Comedy Central series in the works, These New South Whales look set to continue confirming themselves as a once-in-a-generation Australian punk proposition.
