Limited Edition Purple Vinyl!

Adelaide's indie-punk duo, The Hard Aches unleash their new album, Mess - via Anchorhead!

Teaming up with Melbourne producer Sam Johnson (Camp Cope, The Smith Street Band, and The Bennies) and Grammy award winning engineer William Bowden, Mess features guest vocal parts from Camp Cope's Georgia Maq, The Bennies' Craig Selak, and Long Island's own Jeff Rosenstock, who happened to be in the country for Melbourne's yearly punk rock festival, the Poison City Weekender.

Says guitarist/vocalist Ben David: "Our brand-new album Mess is a collection of songs inspired by the people around us and the experiences we've all shared together or apart. Written with a focus on mental health in a hopeful and positive light. This album is sonically (and creatively) the best representation of us as a band, the album we've been working towards creating through years of touring and making music." 
Mess, is also the name of the first single from the album. The track comes from a place of hope, a feeling of knowing that everything is going to be ok regardless of how hard it might be sometimes.
