Dicey's Saturdays X Great Southern Nights w/ ARSE // Loose Fit // Drift
ARSE are flying the ragged flag of genre-bending Australian punk in 2020. Their Quietus-approved Primitive Species was a slow-burning shot in the arm of a debut, followed closely by a crushing split 7” with noise duo Party Dozen in 2018. Last year’s Safe Word EP doled out more of the live-wire guitar work, sledgehammer rhythms and paint-stripping production which has become the trio’s signature.
Their timeless spin on the genre isn’t lost on the old guard or the new, having ripped rooms apart for The Hard Ons, Cosmic Psychos, Amyl and The Sniffers, No Age and These New South Whales in 2019 alone. With a full-length release slated for the rear-end of the year, ARSE is truly a band on fire.
“ARSE return with an explosive serving of scalding punk ecstasy.”
Happy Mag on Safe Word
“Perhaps the wittiest act in Australia’s punk scene, ARSE are not only here to get you jumping up and down. They're here to make you question your very existence.”
‘ARSE just sent me three steps back in the evolutionary chain.’
Tommy Faith, Triple J Unearthed.
