Palms Releasing New Album Just In Time For Summer

Palms have just announced the release of their second album ‘Crazy Rack’, an eclectic and fuzzy collection set to release on October 30.

The Sydney four-piece had help again from Owen Penglis (Royal Headache, Straight Arrows, The Grates) to record the thrash-pop album, and have already released singles Bad Apple and Beatdown from the LP. The hazy, high-energy songs have a summery, surf-rock vibe to them, perfect hits for the warmer months to come.  

The origins of ‘Crazy Rack’ lie in the album's eye catching cover. Well before the band had started thinking about recording a second album, drummer Tom Wallace showed them a collection of photos he'd taken.  Coming across a shot of a clothes rack propped up outside a central coast op-shop, Al proclaimed the shot as their next (as yet unrecorded) album on the spot.

Lead singer Al Grigg said of the photo: “It started to make even more sense as the album cover and title. I love that when you hear the words 'Crazy Rack' you immediately think of a rock n roll cliche, like a strippers fake boobs or a pile of cocaine. But the reality is it's just this very mundane and everyday pile of clothes”.

Palms will be touring the new album very soon, but in the meantime they are currently touring Australia supporting Last Dinosaurs and we have all the tour dates below.
