Bleeding Knees Club

Biography

Aussie garage-pop 'n' surf-punk act Bleeding Knees Club burst out of Australia's Gold Coast in early 2011 and started to build a steady fanbase through their reckless live performances and via their super-catchy demos, which quickly found champions beyond the Aussie board scene. Their debut UK single, Have Fun, was released on the Noir label last summer and quickly struck a chord with UK tastemakers, enjoying radio support from Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens on Radio One, Lauren Laverne on 6Music and Jon Kennedy on Xfm where the song was also added to the evening playlist.

The duo spent much of the summer of 2011 in the UK where they shared stages with Black Lips, Cults, Toro y Moi, Blood Orange and Cerebral Ballzy. They also scored spots on The Great Escape in Brighton and Liverpool Sound City while NME named them as one of the 50 Best New Bands of 2011.

Between UK commitments, Jordan and Alex then high-tailed it to New York City to record their forthcoming debut album with Dev Hynes (Lightspeed Champion and Blood Orange) as producer. The upcoming record, Nothing To Do, encapsulates everything that's making people fall in love with Bleeding Knees Club: it's a raw 'n' urgent set of super-fun songs about girls, getting high, and sticking it to The Man. The album was mixed in the UK by Dan Grech-Marguerat (The Vaccines, Chew Lips, Kaiser Chiefs) and will be released on Columbia Records on February 27th.
