"Super Best Friends may have made their name with last year’s Canberra-centric, guest-packed, election-timed video for ‘Round and Round’, but they’ve just proven that they have at least one other song. The new single ‘Out Tonight’ is a throbbing, booze-themed anthem produced and mixed by Tom Larkin (Bodyjar, High Tension). About avoiding punch-ups with drunken dickheads rather than inciting them (“Cuz every other dude’s ripped and massive”), it showcases both a tweaked line-up and more grunge-leaning sound for the band. They’re touring the East Coast this month, playing with The Love Junkies on most of the dates.”

We’re part of a feature on #viralvideos in @tonedeaf_music today along with actual famous dudes @thekitestringtangle and @vaudevillesmash. One year on, still amazed our lanky outgoing bass player @themattroberts made the #RoundandRound video happen. Good looks, good production chops. On ya Matt! (at The Innernette)
So we thought the #superthreadsfriends promo had run its course and then this. Garrett from Too Soon! is crowned the Goulburn Donut Shop’s inaugural Champion Donut Eater in one of our shirts. And we’re back! Happy shirt of September everybody!
Two weeks from tonight, the guy on the right (@garrtown from Too Soon!) will be in America, but the guy on the left (JB from SBF) on will be back at @transitbar doing a show with @thelovejunkies! There ain’t no party like a Wednesday 17 September party, #Canberra! (at Transit Bar)
