Hailing from Melbourne, 60’s tinged psych-rock punks The Murlocs are touring their brand new studio album, Rapscallion. Strapped with fuzzy guitar licks, feverish bass and psychedelic brightness, the 12-track collection is a coming-of-age novel in an album form.

The wildly squalid odyssey populated by an outrageous cast of misfit characters — teenage vagabonds and small-time criminals, junkyard dwellers and truck-stop transients — is partly inspired by frontman Ambrose Kenny-Smith’s own adolescence as a nomadic skate kid. Their most magnificently heavy work yet, the result is an endlessly enthralling album equally steeped in danger and delirium and the wide-eyed romanticism of youth.

It all goes down at Northcote Theatre on April 22. Tickets go live tomorrow, January 19. Grab them by heading here.
