“Crafting an intriguing labyrinth of lyrical Easter eggs and mouth-full-of-marbles drawl. We’ll be watching them, if they’re not watching us first…” – The Guardian
“I still dream of their London show…unreal” – Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1)
“A fuzzy and face-melting noise straight out of Cobourg, Canada” – Kerrang!
“Scuzzy, heavy and beautifully punishing…the sort of vigour and angst of a duo with something to prove” – Rock Sound
cleopatrick have announced their highly anticipated debut album ‘BUMMER’, due for release June 4th via their own label Nowhere Special Recordings via Thirty Tigers / The Orchard (pre-order here). Coinciding with the announcement, the band have shared lead single ‘FAMILY VAN’ with its own video game, and headline UK tour dates for November 2021.
Utilising their penchant for hip-hop arrangements, ‘FAMILY VAN’ is cleopatrick’s biggest statement to date, a truly thrilling and cut-throat fuzz laden declaration that is a much-needed reawakening of guitar music, heading straight for the jugular.
The release of ‘FAMILY VAN’ comes alongside its own video game, complete with an 8-bit soundtrack created by the band themselves. The video game sees cleopatrick wake up in their hometown of Coburg, Ontario, late for a headline show in Toronto, where the player then has to drive the duo’s trusty van Vannah Montanah to the gig on time, dodging various obstacles and challenges along the way including picking up the band and crew, major label contracts and over-zealous hangers-on.
