Barely Dressed Records is delighted to welcome fast-rising Brisbane punks Good Boy to their roster for the release of their brilliant impending EP Shirk Life out Friday 10 November.

To celebrate the signing, Good Boy have released a strange and wonderful video for first single ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’ premiered by The 405 and have also shared details for their headline Australian tour.

Produced and engineered by Tim Fitz (Middle Kids), and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring / Total Control), ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’ is a 2 minute 30 second burst of hyper-intelligent garage punk energy. And now it comes with an equally awesome video.

Created by Australia’s pre-eminent music video auteur SPOD, the video combines 3-D animation taking aim at the absurdity and vulgarity of Pauline Hanson and right-wing politics within Australia. "Fishing With A Shotgun is a dig at the disgusting, spineless leaders that run our country, the dismal state of Australian politics and the gutless idiots too dumb and stupid to say or do anything,” says singer Rian King, “It talks about the helplessness felt by thousands of young Aussies.”

Infused with vitriol and incendiary lyrics, ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’ is the first single to come from Good Boy’s brand new EP Shirk LifeShirk Life will be available on a limited edition 12” vinyl, packaged with their earlier standout EP Plum. You can pre-order the double EP now.

Good Boy have built a reputation for barnstorming live shows and recordings which are whip-smart and raucous. Their live energy recalls the best of Cloud NothingsParquet Courts and Australia’s influential Eddy Current Suppression Ring. In the last 12 months alone they have played Falls FestivalBlurst of TimesSplendour in the Grass, and toured with SkeggsThe CreasesJapandroids and Grinspoon.  And today they have announced their own headline tour this December.

This is an 18+ event.
