Local legends Polish Club have announced their second full length effort, the intriguingly titled Iguana, as well as a monster 18 date tour to celebrate the record in style.
Named after the infamous Kings Cross haunt, Iguana sees Polish Club adopt a more fleshed out sound, expanding on previous singles 'Clarity' and 'We Don't Care' to offer an immersive 12 track project. Produced by longtime producer and bassist Wade Keighran, Iguana is scheduled to be released on Friday June 7.
In a statement released today, drummer John-Henry Pajak lamented on the process of recording a second album - “Having been in this band for five years, I think there’s less time for us to faff about. That’s why we put heaps of pressure on evolving the sound; we haven’t got time to bang out three similar albums... I never understood why bands struggle with second albums, but now I totally get it.”
To celebrate the release of Iguana, Polish Club will also be embarking on the nation-hopping Meet Me At The Iguana tour throughout June and July. Check out all the dates below.
