Raw punk power: Blowers to launch their new album at The Curtin


The Melbourne-based punks are set to release Blown Again tomorrow.

Promising to be a fast-paced, raw and lo-fi garage punk experience, filled with tongue-in-cheek humour and provocative themes, Blown Again will be released on April 14. Following the release, Blowers are set to perform a show at The Curtain on July 29, joined by local legends Rot TV.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The band comprises of Kit Convict (vox, guitar), Andrew Porter (vox, guitar), Shannon Aswell (vox, drums) and Pip McMullan (bass). They are known for their triple vocal attacks, blistering guitars, and their ability to captivate their audience with fast-paced tunes.

Blowers’ second LP follows up from their debut self-titled LP. With tracks like Shut The Fuck Up, Wipe My Ass, Slice’n’Dice and Bad 4 U, Blown Again will feature songs that jump off the record and grab you by the throat. The album was recorded in a shared warehouse space on a cold and blurred weekend, engineered & mixed by Loki Lockwood, and mastered by Mikey Young.

Blowers are often found in dive bars and shit-holes of Melbourne, and their live shows are a must-see for fans of the genre. The band has shared stages with renowned bands like Black Lips, Cosmic Psychos, The Schizophonics, The Cavemen, Six Ft Hick, Hard-Ons, Sore Points, Mean Jeans, No Fun At All, Grindhouse, Private Function and Stiff Richards.

Blowers’ album launch for Blown Again is set to take place on July 29, at The Curtin in Melbourne, with support from ROT TV. It is bound to be an unforgettable night, filled with fast-paced tunes and raw punk power that will leave fans wanting more.

Blown Again will be available on vinyl, tape, and digital via Chaputa Records (worldwide) and Spooky Records (Australia). Keep up to date with all things Blowers by heading here.
