Ahead of the release of their upcoming studio album, Aussie punk legends the Hard-Ons have now unveiled the film clip for their latest tune, ‘Oh, You’re Crushed?’
Have you ever found yourself at a Hard-Ons show? Statistically, there’s a pretty good chance of it.
After all, with the band having been around for close to 40 years, and with hundreds of raucous shows under their belt, it’s almost a rite of passage for an Aussie music fan to catch them live.
Early last month saw the Australian music icons announce their latest album, So I Could Have Them Destroyed. Their first since 2014, and first with Keish de Silva since 2000, the new record is already shaping up to be a huge addition to an already-stacked year of music.
Having released lead single ‘Harder And Harder’, the Hard-Ons have now unleashed the clip for their latest single, ‘Oh, You’re Crushed?’, sharing the wild film clip for the track today.
Serving as a furious example of what makes them so iconic, the new single showcases the band’s brutal rock and roll sound, and pairing it with pop sensibilities so masterfully-applied that would leave even the most accomplished of chart toppers feeling shocked.
Produced by Jonathan Sequeira, the clip though shows exactly what Aussie music fans are missing out on by not heading along to one of the band’s blistering live shows.
Featuring live footage of the band, their dedicated crowd, and the interaction between the two, the video captures the Hard-Ons at their best, portraying their wild antics, shirtless glory, and the deluge of sweat from both sides of the stage that goes into making the band’s shows some to remember.
The Hard-Ons’ So I Could Have Them Destroyed is set to be released on October 11th, with pre-orders available now. The group will also be hitting the road in November, so make sure you catch them live when you get a chance!
