It may have been a while between drinks for Melbourne emo-punk outfit Bukowski, but today the band make their explosive and eagerly awaited comeback with the punchy new single One Hundred Seconds.

Engineered, produced, mixed and mastered by Jack Newlyn (Paradise Club / Between You & Me), Bukowski’s newest offering is, as the title suggests, just under two minutes of relentless energy, ferocious vocals and blistering riffs. Frontman James Karagiozis reveals the track emerged from an evening jam session, fueled by the idea of writing something “fast”.

“The lyrics just flowed out – maybe it had something to do with the headspace I was in at the time,” says Karagiozis. “I was questioning everything, wondering if I was truly living or just existing. Looking back, I think it was a subliminal message to myself – a call to grab life by the horns and experience it to the fullest. Whatever that means for you, go for it, head first!”.

Bukowski’s return is just the beginning. The four mates (James Karagiozis – vocals/guitar, Benji Malkin-Adby – guitar, Gerard Dowling – drums, Jamie Rolfe – bass) haven’t lost their bite since their 2017 debut EP ‘Grow Up. Give Up. Let Go.’, releasing a steady stream of gutsy, emotive and rough-around-the-edges singles leading into 2021’s Elevator Song and sharing the stage with the likes of Knuckle Puck, Trophy Eyes, and Deaf Havana to name a few. After taking a couple of years to work on new music and focus on their personal lives, the self-proclaimed ‘complaint rock n roll’ band have finally found their groove, and are ready to hit the ground running with more releases and announcements to come throughout the year.
