Golden Robot Records will release The Hard-Ons‘ 14th full length, Ripper 23, worldwide, with Cheer Squad Records covering the Australian release, on the 2nd June, and their new single, Apartment For Two, is out now. The new single is a frenetic pop-punk blast; three delicious minutes of squealing guitars, pounding drums, pulverising bass, and sitting atop, like a semi-detached ring-pull, is Tim Rogers‘ intense ‘tude-laden vocals. A perfect slab of what constitutes The Hard-Ons, circa 2023.

The video for Apartment For Two was produced and directed by Jonathan J. Sequeira at Living Eyes, and manages to pull off the unique feat of providing homage to both an obscure fictional US teenage musical group, Mulligan Stew, and the UK’s pioneering electronic musician and renowned face transplanter, Aphex Twin.

The Hard Ons are currently embarking on a whistlestop European tour this month, taking in Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and Germany, before heading out on an Australian tour next month. This is the band’s first road haul since pre-pandemic times, and a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with fans around the globe who have been waiting to get their hands on new Hard-Ons for some time.
