“‘Does It Matter?’ closes out with showy guitar work that evokes the late, great Eddie Van Halen. These blistering riffs underscore repeated affirmations–“Does it matter?/It doesn’t ma-tter, NO!”–which just beg to be belted out en masse in a live setting.”
Hysteria Magazine“From the ashes of all that horrible bullshit rises this very catchy and very cool new song. Well, ‘Does It Matter?’ Fuck yeah it does. Their last album was a monster of an album and if this song is anything to go by, the next one should be a blinder.”

Wall Of Sound“Indignation never sounded like such a party! Whether they’re dealing with broken strings at the gig, twisted ankles in the bowl or a flawed socio-economic system, Clowns have the best time going at it with full speed.”
Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe

“This might be my fave Clowns song – it’s a heap of fun and had me craving jumping up and down at a festival again pls and thank you.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne

“The perfect example of what hard work and a handy dose of wit can do if you stick to your guns.”
The Age

Joining Clowns on tour will be Sydney’s C.O.F.F.I.N at all dates except July 31st and in October, which will see Clowns head north for Alice Springs’ Blacken Open Air Festival and then out to Brisbane for Halloween Hysteria at the Mansfield Tavern!

When Clowns go in, they go in hard. And that’s exactly what their new single ‘Does It Matter?’ has done, and then some.

The return of the beloved Melbourne punks has come at the most perfect of times – especially for those in their home state – providing music for those wishing to purge and expel the pent up frustration and energy from over the last year.

Continuing to propel this momentum forward, Clowns are excited to bring their new slice of heat to venues around the country this July and August, giving fans their first opportunity in over a year to throw down and get that electric live Clowns experience back in their lives.

Along with the tour announcement comes news of a special Clowns live streamed event – Livestreamed and Dangerous – coming up this June. Filmed at 170 Russell in Melbourne, Clowns were able to perform a one-off gig to a crowd of 500 hungry gig goers, ready to get at it after a year of being locked down.

As you can imagine, it was one for the books. A shining return to form, Clowns proved they were back and ready to take a well overdue bite out of live music. Think of the show as a primer for the tour to come. For more information on this unmissable show, visit the official website.
