Melbourne trio CLAMM head back out around the country after the release of their celebrated 2022 album Care, and welcome new member Stella Rennex (Parsnip, Thibault) on bass.
CLAMM explore the confusion of what it is to be a young person trying to live an honourable life in this fucked up world. Through the medium of urgent, blown out punk, they try to navigate systems of power and oppression while retaining a healthy sense of self and mental health.
In Australia the band has supported Ty Segall, Wolf Alice, Amyl & the Sniffers, the Chats, Civic and the Murlocs, with upcoming shows with King Gizzard and Pavement. CLAMM toured UK/Europe in Aug/Sep 2022, playing sold out shows in London and Berlin. They head back again in Jan/Feb 2023, playing shows with A Place To Bury Strangers and Preoccupations.
2022 albumCarewas released by Chapter Music in Australia and UK label Meat Machine (home to Canadian provocateurs Crack Cloud). It received multiple spins by Iggy Pop and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music, and coverage from Line Of Best Fit, Chicago Reader, NME Australia and elsewhere.
Debut albumBeseech Mewas released on cassette in Australia in 2020 and reissued by Meat Machine in 2021. It saw CLAMM featured on the cover of French Rolling Stone and played on 6 Music.
