Clowns, Fat Wreck Chords new Australian punk rock band, is gearing up for the highly anticipated release of their album, ‘Endless’, on October 20th. Their latest track, "Bisexual Awakening," showcases their explosive musical style. With rapid-fire guitar riffs, intense drumming, and raw vocals, the song encapsulates the band's signature energy. To get a taste of their new music, check out the accompanying video. It’s an incredible mix of hardcore, post punk and angsty power. Clowns are currently on tour in Europe, providing fans with an opportunity to witness their electrifying performances firsthand.
In "Bisexual Awakening," lead singer Stevie Williams offers personal insights into his own journey and the realization of his bisexuality. The track explores the pervasive nature of bisexuality and sheds light on the presence of bisexual individuals in everyday life, often hidden and unnoticed by themselves and those around them. Williams wanted the song to maintain Clowns' fierce and powerful style, aligning seamlessly with their existing discography. By highlighting the adaptability of bisexual people, the song metaphorically reflects how they can blend into various situations while still feeling a sense of not fully belonging.
The lyrics of "Bisexual Awakening" also touch upon the challenges faced by bisexual individuals, such as biphobia and bi-invisibility. Williams approaches these topics in his own light-hearted way, using humor to navigate serious matters. By embracing the inherent unpredictability of his own bisexuality, Williams finds excitement and joy in the freedom to love and connect with a diverse range of individuals.
Since their formation in 2009, Clowns has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Australian punk rock scene. Their discography includes four studio albums, with their 2019 release earning them a nomination for the prestigious ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Album..
"Bisexual Awakening" as it is a blistering punk rock anthem that tackles the challenges and experiences of bisexual individuals with unapologetic energy and it's the kind of attitude we've come to expect from Fat Wreck Chord bands like Propagandi. These guys are definitely worthy of the comparison.
