Australia’s alt-pop icons, The Veronicas, have returned to the scene with the release of their new single and video, Perfect. The release comes with the announcement of their forthcoming album, ‘GOTHIC SUMMER’, out early 2024 via Big Noise.

Perfect is a riotous pop/rock anthem, infused with 90’s style distorted guitars, shimmering melodies, and passionate adlibs. The spirited anthem reflects timely on society’s obsession with comparison and perception, urging greater self-love, and mastery of your own design.  The single was created with John Feldmann (Blink-182Avril LavigneYungBlud), and co-produced by Ryan Linville (Olivia RodrigoChappell RoanCharlotte Cardin). To add more excitement and pop-punk nostalgia to the mix, Travis Barker from Blink-182 happened to be in the neighborhood and jumped on the drums for the track.

Drawing inspiration from one of their favorite quotes – ‘In a society that profits from your self-doubt, loving yourself is a rebellious act’ – The Veronicas share their thoughts on the song: “Perfect is a love letter to our younger and current selves. Perfection has a different meaning for everyone. Social media has changed how we interact with the world. Perception versus reality is rewarded and condemned. From what people wear, to who they date. It’s like a magnifying glass. We just want to remind everyone to empower themselves, and free their minds. We all die in the end; we have to live with and love ourselves fiercely first and foremost. On our deathbeds the only opinion that will matter on how you’ve lived will be your own.” 

After a brief break from the global spotlight, The Veronicas are back, ready to  take the throne as the OG trailblazers for the alt-pop renaissance we’re seeing today, next to artists like Olivia Rodrigo, and queer anthem artists like Charli XCXJessie and Lisa reflect on their journey, saying, “We were fortunate to experience success early in our careers, touring extensively around the world for 12 years. Taking a break to live life was a necessary step for us. We can’t wait to reconnect with the people who loved our music as we were all growing up together.”

For this next chapter, The Veronicas have aligned with LA-based record label Big Noise, home to The UsedMOD SUNGoldfinger and more. The team are elated to add the talented twins to the roster as the first female group signed to the label, and release their awaited new album. President Jon Cohan shared, “We couldn’t be more excited to begin this new era of The Veronicas with ‘Perfect’! The song is absolutely incredible and will certainly set the tone for the months to come and, of course, for the new album.”

Stay tuned for more tour announcements and exciting new music as The Veronicas gear up for ‘GOTHIC SUMMER’ in 2024.
