GOLD CLASS Announce new album Drum Release video for ‘Twist In The Dark’ On tour this July

by the partae

Incendiary Melbourne four piece Gold Class have announced their new album titled Drum – set for release on Friday 18 August via Barely Dressed Records / Remote Control Records. The band has also shared a video for their first single off the record – ‘Twist In The Dark.’ Premiered last night via DIY Mag.

Drum is the bold second album from Gold Class. The follow-up to 2015 debut It’s YouDrum is a vivid and assured document of a band hitting its stride while also displaying the complexity and scars of a life since lived. Recorded at Melbourne’s Head Gap studios and Tropical Fuck Storm Studios and produced by Gareth Liddiard of The DronesDrum sees Gold Class explore new sonic territory.

Commenting on the album title, Adam Curley (lead singer) says “Drum is primitive. It’s physical. It’s the beat of your heart. It’s immediate. It comes from the past, but it also beckons to something in the future.” It holds other dualities, too – submission and authority; repetition and propulsion. And yet at its core, it’s just something you can dance to.

Formed in 2014 by a union of workmates and friends from a Melbourne bar and creative-writing course,Gold Class’ string of lean, explosive live shows culminated in It’s You – a distillation of the then-fledgling group’s wiry punk, carried by Curley’s booming baritone and themes of personal politics, sexuality and identity. The album was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize and saw Gold Class play sold out shows across Australia and London, local festivals Golden Plains and Splendour in The Grass, as well as international sets at SXSW in 2016, and The Great EscapeLondon Calling andPrimavera Sound earlier this year.
