Debut album from exciting new Melbourne post-punk outfit Bench Press. Original painted artwork by Ruby Lu. Digipack CD version.

Recorded and mixed over the summer of 2017 by Matt Chow and mastered by Mikey Young, Bench Press's debut album straddles the sound of classic post-punk (a la Dischord / Touch & Go Records) and the gritty style of garage-rock that their hometown of Melbourne is well versed in. Ten tracks that emit that wonderful blend of youthful energy and warm sense of years gone by - when underground music was delivered with less frills and with more urgency.

Vocalist Jack Stavrakis muses, "lyrically this album is all about introspection - looking closely at yourself and being honest about your own situation in an attempt to better understand how you feel - to learn from this and to be the best you can be.”
