Firmly staking their position as one of Australia’s premier alt-rock outfits, LOSER release the fourth single The More I Know from their waterfall-style EP ‘Stadium Dreams On A Bedroom Budget’. With this release LOSER will be touring the east-coast in May across 6 stops.
Skilfully balancing power with refinement, madness with melody they now share the vulnerable experience of re-establishing creative drive after lost passion. Harnessing the strength of any great Foo Fighter album, they have gained critical and industry acclaim for their highly refined take on alt-rock.
“After lockdown it was hard to get back to regular programming, I lost faith in playing music and I was questioning whether I wanted to do it anymore. Craig and I sat down and punched this song out in a day, the lyrics are the most meaningful on the EP. It’s about getting out of that rut and wanting to succeed more than ever after spending so much creative energy trying to make ends meet.” – Tim Maxwell, LOSER
The More I Know was recorded at Restless Noise Studios, the band’s own home studio. The track was produced by band members Craig Selak and Tim Maxwell, the latter of whom also mixed. To close out the team, the track was then mastered by George Georgiadis at Little Wing Sound (The VANNS, Gang Of Youths).
For this release, LOSER will not be offering physical merch except for an extremely limited run of 10 x signed Clear 12” Vinyl, never to be re-pressed again. Not available to purchase, these vinyls will only be open to those who attend a LOSER live show on their tour across the east coast in May. Mid-set, the band will randomly draw a ticket holder’s name and pass along the vinyl to the chosen fan.
“Call it crazy, call it genius, call it something in between – either way we thought this was the best and coolest way to share something special for this EP with our fans. It’s a gift to the people who come to see us live and hopefully a cool collectible in the future as we won’t ever be pressing this release again in its current form. We’re yet to know if our signatures will actually de-value the vinyl or not hahahah” – LOSER
As with the previous singles to be released, LOSER are releasing a live performance clip, filmed at Restless Noise Studio. “We wanted all the music videos for the release to be live performances. We also wanted to show people that we can actually play our own instruments. It’s funny that in 2023 that has become a point of difference, but we don’t wanna hide behind technology, because when it comes to performing we’re the real deal.”
The first 3 releases from the EP featured soaring riffed-out power that LOSER has become known for. Collectively, those three songs have cracked 100k streams across streaming platforms. Maintaining strength and punk tenacity throughout they also showcased their versatility with gentle stripped-back single Only One. Across the three releases they received high acclaim from industry tastemakers such as NME, Amnplify, triple j, SYN, BRock, 4ZZZ, Rebel FM and more.
Since Tim Maxwell and Craig Selak joined forces in 2018 for their combined project LOSER, they’ve passed milestones at break-neck speeds and soared to dizzying heights. They’ve scored nominations for both the Australian Music Prize and ‘Punk Album of the Year’ in the 2022 AIR Awards alongside triple j rotations, NME feature articles and a Scenestr magazine front cover.
With over 2 million streams across previous releases, support slots for Violent Soho, Ruby Fields, British India, Bugs, Slowly Slowly and more, the band have also graced the stages of iconic Festivals like Falls Festival, BIGSOUND 2022, The Hills are Alive, Beer InCider and Til’ The Wheels Fall Off.
