New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Arse.
ARSE are flying the ragged flag of genre-bending Australian punk in 2020. Their Quietus-approved Primitive
Species was a slow-burning shot in the arm of a debut, followed closely by a crushing split 7” with noise duo
Party Dozen in 2018. Last year’s Safe Word EP doled out more of the live-wire guitar work, sledgehammer rhythms and paint-stripping production which has become the trio’s signature.
Their timeless spin on the genre isn’t lost on the old guard or the new, having ripped rooms apart for The
Hard Ons, Cosmic Psychos, Amyl and The Sniffers, No Age and These New South Whales in 2019 alone.
With a full-length release slated for the rear-end of the year, ARSE is truly a band on fire.
