AUSSIE ROCKERS C.O.F.F.I.N announce new album, release new single.
SYDNEY Northern Beaches’ very own rockers C.O.F.F.I.N. have just announced their fifth full-length studio album, ‘Australia Stops,’ will be released on September 15th via Bad Vibrations.
The album comes off the back of the band’s tour with Amyl and the Sniffers in 2022, and their recent UK tour dates this May.
‘Australia Stops’ was recorded in January 2023 at The Pet Food Factory studio with producer Jason Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb) and showcases a collection of diverse and gripping new works highlighting the band’s evolution into a more melodious, 1970’s Australiana and boogie rock and roll outfit.
And following previous single, ‘Cut You Off’, C.O.F.F.I.N have also just announced the follow up, ‘Give Me A Bite,’ the album’s opening track which comes out of the traps all guns blazing, tapping into their love of Detroit rock ‘n’ roll and proto-punk.
“Throughout a chunk of the Covid lockdowns I was still working full-time on construction sites and in the art department of film sets,” said vocalist and drummer Ben Portnoy.
“For weeks my Friday routine was to come home and blast this bootlegged Stooges LP from France. It’s made up of piecemeal demos and blown-out jams, all of which are bursting with amplified energy. I was really missing jamming with my friends and showing up to our sweaty storage unit/jam space in Brookvale with new inspiration from the week’s listening.
“Trying to resolve this, we did our best to nut something out that had a sense of that sound we love so much.”
Frenzied, high-voltage guitars, thumping rhythms, and flowing melody exhibit an undeniable progression in composition and songwriting, while still unmistakably the C.O.F.F.I.N that fans world-wide have come to expect over their 18-year lifespan.
