Blank Statements

Signs Are Rampant

Tough Love

Released: 25th March 2019



Tough Love have just issued Blank Statements debut, Signs Are Rampant, on vinyl for the first time. Originally released as a very limited run of cassettes on Hobbies Galore in 2017, all eight tracks are featured here alongside one previously unheard track, 'Successor Island'. It's a strictly limited run of just 300 copies - 200 on black vinyl, and 100 on white vinyl.
If you're hearing some kinship with fellow Melburnians The Stroppies, then your ears are functioning right - Claudia and Steph play in both bands, and of course, Hobbies Galore is the original home for both, not to mention Julia's solo project. And there's a shared spirit of DIY spontaneity on show, here allied with a whip-smart sense of humour that's as addictive as it is intimidating. Smart, funny, effortless, as debuts go it's an impressive concoction that teeters on the edge of collapse. But of course it never does. Needless to say, we're very much anamoured with this record and are privileged to bring it to vinyl (and digital) for the first time.
