Local Resident Failure begin recording new album, post studio update

New Castle punk rockers Local Resident Failure are currently working on a new album which was crowd-funded through an Indiegogo campaign. The band recently post a studio update on their Facebook saying the following:

“So an update on the new album is a bit overdue but here’s the story. Firstly a huuuuge thanks to everyone who pledged for the album campaign, we didn’t quite reach the goal of $10k but managed to get $6590 which is a ridiculous help and will still go a long way to getting it finished!

We have been recording pretty heavily over the last month or so and the 15 new tracks are coming together pretty alright. Unlike the last album this one isn’t going to take 2 years to finish, so it’s looking like a release will be happening sometime in the not so distant future. On top of this we will be touring Europe for most of August and planning a bit of an Aus tour for the album after that, more details over the next couple of weeks!”

We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details about the new album becomes available. Local Resident Failure’s last full-length entitled A Breath Of Stale Air was released back in 2012 through Pee Records.

Local Resident Failure launches Indiegogo campaign for upcoming album

Aussies punk outfit Local Resident Failure have started an Indiegogo campaign to fund their next record, which will be the follow up to their 2012 “A breath of stale air” album released on Pee Records.

Here’s what the band had to say about it:

“So here’s the thing. We are working on a new album that will be out mid year. It’s all written and just needs to be recorded. We are a poor punk band with no money.
If you wanna help us out then there are heaps of perks that you can get in on including a party, Feffy recording you a jingle and Smitty recording and dedicating some drum medleys of your choice.
Our friends in The Decline recently raised some cash to help get their EP out and managed to reach their goal early which gave us this idea. It’s pretty much the only option for a new album to be out anytime soon. Check it out! ”
