With their biggest UK and EU tour now in the rear-view mirror - a triumphant victorylap after the release of their critically lauded new album Wasted Energy last summer- Australian indie-punk hopes Press Club return with a video for their newsingle Insecurities, just as they begin a run of AUS dates in support of The Menzingers.2019 saw the band back up the promise of their debut album Late Teens withWasted Energy, as they toured relentlessly through the UK. Finding more and morefans through performances at The Great Escape, Reading & Leeds Festivals, and ahost of sold-out club shows, they were also spotlighted across BBC Radio. AnnieMac named them her "Future Sound", they performed live in session from MaidaVale for Dan P Carter's BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, and tastemaker Steve Lamacqintroduced them to BBC 6 Music listeners with thunderous former single Separate Houses.With Insecurities - three minutes and two seconds of concise and visceral power-pop- Press Club capture all that they do best: earworm melodies, fists-in-the-skyintensity, and heartfelt introspection, with singer Natalie Foster the familiar firebeneath them. Featuring shades of 1980’s North American punk rock and craftilyinterwoven overdrive, Insecurities unfurls into an anthemic chorus, with a decidedlyfolk sensibility. Lyrically singer, Natalie Foster, reveals self doubt, insecurities, and itis a touchstone for the band’s progress since releasing their debut record Late Teens in 2019.Ever-prolific, Insecurities was originally recorded during the Wasted Energysessions, and was plucked by German publication Visions Magazine for inclusion intheir annual rarities compilation record of never-before heard material. Itfeatured alongside artists including IDLES, Metz, Ty Segall, Marilyn Manson and J.Mascis, with Press Club also being named the #1 Newcomer of the Year in their readers poll.
