PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS continue to dominate with UK radio success, Wildlife Entertainment signing, UK + European + Australian tours and new single, ‘SOCIAL CANDY’!

To say the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are having a nice run of late would be a massive understatement. The Perth rockers have continued to go from strength to strength, landing successfully on the radar of international music media“Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are here to blow your mind.” Clash Magazine, as well as triumphing at home in Australia off the back of the releases of High Visceral Part 1, Part 2 and B-sides. Lucrative slots supporting Royal Blood and Nothing But Thieves this year brought the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets to more newcomers off the back of a completely sold out headline tour, continuing to spur on the positive momentum surrounding their eclectic style.

Hailed by DIY Mag as ‘Australia’s next great psych band’, the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets aren’t showing any signs of slowing down either, revelling in their recent signing to UK management label Wildlife Entertainment, home to acts including the Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood and The Last Shadow Puppets. Another sign of the size of waves the band is making in the UK and through Europe, their tour in the region is selling like hotcakes, with an extra show being announced to meet demand in London, while dates in Manchester and Amsterdam have already SOLD OUT. The musical taste the band has been leaving with UK radio is one that has seen Radio X select ‘Cornflake’ as their ‘Big One’ Exposure Record, while BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music have also featured the track on air. The love is strong for the Perth group and well mirrored in the ferocity of their fans’ loyalty.

For a band out of Australia’s West Coast to be levelling up to the high standard set – in the eyes of international crowds and critics – by the likes of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Tame Impala, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have proven their stripes as a frenetic live act, as well as an incredible unit on record.

New single ‘SOCIAL CANDY’ is just the latest example of the band’s fiery approach to their craft. Bombastic from the jump, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ latest release teems with vibrancy and melody; guitars swirl with heavy percussion and hypnotic vocals, making this tune a surefire favourite with fans who have rocked with the band from Day One, as well as being an enticing number for those just switching on. “Lyrically inspired by being absolutely smeagaled, musically reminiscent of the times where you’re battling between McDonalds or forking out for an Indian. A mix of up and down, left or right, Star Wars or that rom-com your girlfriend promised you’d life. Decision upon bad decision. Nights out or The Knights Inn. Whatever you pick really doesn’t matter ‘cause you exist at the same time as every other weird Ghandi who thinks time and space is their own substance. Pick the feeling that makes you say ‘Gromit’ and Wallace yourself into oblivion.”  Jack McEwan, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets


“Hailing from Perth, the four piece are big on psychedelic head-bangers and their latest release ‘Cornflake’ alternates wall-shaking percussion with fuzzed out guitar solos and hypnotically hazy vocals.”

Wonderland Magazine

“It’s a crazy world we live in, and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets aren’t about to try and make sense of that to feed your earthly expectations. Psych.”

Gigwise

“The biggest Zeppelin style riff collides with a dreamy Tame Impala meets Jesus and The Mary Chain’s psychedelic dream to produce a two-speed pantechnicon that grabs you by the throat from the first note, throttles you wildly before dropping you, gasping and searching for more.”
Louder Than War

Fans in Australia needn’t think the Porn Crumpets have forgotten about the work they’ve put in at home; the release of ‘Social Candy’ marks the beginning of a brand new chapter for the band, one the fans are encouraged to jump onboard for. Heading out on the road through October, the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets will be hitting venues right around the country with a show set to impress.
