CLEOPATRICK ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM BUMMER
DUE OUT JUNE 4


LEAD SINGLE & VIDEO GAME "FAMILY VAN" OUT NOW

 Two friends (guitarist/vocalist Luke Gruntz and drummer Ian Fraser) meet aged four in Hicksville, Nowheretown (real name: Cobourg, Ontario, population 19,000), grow up completely inseparable, form a band and, against numerous obstacles, blossom into a genuine, global underground sensation as cleopatrick. There are heroes and villains, highs and lows and, crucially, some of the most poetic plot twists that could seem almost too perfect, were they not completely true. 


Since breakthrough track “hometown”, cleopatrick have logged 77 million streams and counting - all from an increasingly dedicated fanbase who’ve found the duo on  their own way: no major label, no big budget, just two best pals knuckling down, cementing a unique sonic alchemy and filling a space of honest, empathetic yet undeniably heavy-hitting rock music that they’d been searching for themselves for years.

THE SOUND: Luke and Ian’s blossoming love of AC/DC’s ‘Back In Black’ and hip hop (the pair cite Drake and Kendrick Lamar as particular obsessions) quickly seeped into their songwriting. Cemented in their abilities as a duo (“I don’t know how we could find a third member it worked as well with, even if we tried”), it became as integral an element within the sonic mix as the bands they’d first fallen in love with. And so, with the MO of making rock music that hit as strongly as the hip hop tracks they loved, but spoke honestly about the things they knew.


THE TOUR: cleopatrick shows are legendary, and the band cannot wait to get back on the road and bring this new album to life. In support of BUMMER they have announced tours in both the US and the UK. All US headline shows will be supported by the band’s New Rock Mafia cohorts: Zig Mentality and Ready the Prince. Stateside, the shows kick off on September 22nd in Chicago and conclude on October 29th in Brooklyn. The full US routing is below and tickets are available here.

THE NEW SINGLE: Heavy hitting single, FAMILY VAN was born out of frustration. “It’s an exercise in anger, and a conscious acknowledgement of the humble beginnings, independence, and DIY mentality that makes our band what we are,” comments Luke.
