Melbourne rockers Drunk Mums have returned with a rejuvenated take on the leather clad, boisterous brand of punk rock that has been having fans frothing, with a brand new album in ‘URBAN COWBOY’. Such a return has been marked by a rollicking new single in PHANTOM LIMB – a perfect example of Drunk Mums’ new output: catchy, frenzied and steeped in rich riffs and grit. To celebrate the release of ‘Urban Cowboy’, Drunk Mums are going to be heading out on the road, taking in venues on the east coast  with the most ideal tour partners – New York’s own, Dirty Fences.

Rhythmic, forceful and sonically bright, the new music from Drunk Mum‘s is a heavy dose of rock music that the band is stoked to be unveiling later this year. Recorded by bass player Adam Ritchie and mastered by Mikey Young, Drunk Mums laid this new music down in May after spending April writing and developing new ideas. “Half sounds like what our dads would have listened to, and the other half is what our younger fans would chuck on…” Drunk Mums

Having built a reputation over the years for their rowdy live shows and impressive knack for riling up their audiences with straight-to-the-heart punches of percussion and dirty guitar riffs, it’s no surprise that once you do a Drunk Mums show, you can’t turn back. Following on from performances around the country with the likes of Dune Rats, Richie Ramone, Red Fang and at events including Melbourne’s Cherry Rock Festival, Sounds of the Suburbs and Party in the Paddock and their own sold out headline shows, the band has been able to indulge in a love for sweaty, rock n roll fun, while hone their craft as a formidable live unit at the same time.

“A little more modern-sounding and definitely not a 70’s throwback even though there are obvious nods to older punk, like a punked-up, more confrontational and modern version of all your Aussie faves.”

Sorry State Records

“Their efficient, no-fucking-around method, paired with their hands-on production might be the reason they, in the ever-growing ocean of bands in Melbourne, have managed to stay relevant and make good music that keeps hitting the spot.”

Forte Magazine

“The newer stuff is fucking great, and their older material is played with a renewed enthusiasm. The band seems reinvigorated, and their audience is more rabid than ever.”

The Music

Drunk Mums are gurus when it comes to releasing the pressure valve through music. While they’re not exactly zen when on stage, they’ve got enough tongue-in-cheek rambunctiousness and hard-rockin’ chops that they undoubtedly experience their own form of nirvana when whipping crowds into a frenzy.”
