The Bennies Release First Gram From Upcoming Third Ounce
Life ain’t a dance, it’s a heavy disco – and right now, we’re spending it well by jamming out to a sick new tune from Melbourne party-thrashers The Bennies. The first
single gram to come from their as-yet-unannounced third album ounce, “Party Machine” is a sweet little nug of Poison City perfection, two-and-a-half minutes of fast ‘n’ furious dance punk with a Vengaboys-esque techno breakdown which will have your fist in the air from the second it drops.
A release date for The Bennies’ new full-length isn’t set in stone(r) just yet, but it looks as though we’ll have our hands on it sometime in March 2016… A bit of a ways away, but nothing a national headline run with The Hard Aches and Wet Pensioner can’t hold us over with. That monster of a tour kicks off this week, and if recent shows have given us any indication, fans certainly won’t leave with any munchies for new teasers – they will, however, leave with the actual munchies. You can catch dates for all the shows at the end of this post.
Now, excuse us while we put the “BLUNT” in BLUNT Magazine.
Spark up with an official stream of “Party Machine” below.
