The Creases Throw Down Giant New Single ‘Impact’, Tour Dates To Follow

Brisbane rock and roll royalty The Creases are back in 2016. The quartet, already riding a wave of success from 2015 with some heavy touring around Australia as well as singer-guitarist Joe Agius scooping up the ‘Most Promising Male Songwriter’ prize at the most recent QMAs, The Creases are looking to put a definitive stamp on this year and have started with the release of their brand new single today; Impact.

It’s a stomping main riff backed by some laser-precise tremolo picking. It’s the chorus though where The Creases really stretch their wings. In a marked change of pace for the band, there’s gang vocals, strings and brass across the chorus to give it one Godzilla-sized punch directly into the stratosphere. The Britpop influences are abundant and the results are so impressive. This is without doubt the hugest and most ambitious The Creases have ever sounded, a tune positively fit for a packed out stadium.

There are some familiar names in the production credits here as well, Malcolm Besley of Northeast Party House helming the recording process and Liam McGorry of both Saskwatch and the outrageously good Dorsal Fins lending his talents in providing the big brassy moments.

Along with Impact, The Creases have also announced a few tour dates along the East Coast in early July for anyone keen to see it played as part of what has always been a ripper live show. Good to see one of Australia’s best and brightest young rock bands really stepping it up in a big way. Fingers crossed this means a new record might be on the way…
