Melbourne Punks CLAMM Announce 2023 National Headline Tour

Melbourne punk trio CLAMM are hitting the road this year behind their celebrated 2022 album Care. The band have announced a national headline tour for April and May, with dates lined up in Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney, Fremantle, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

The news also comes alongside the announcement of a new addition to the CLAMM lineup, with the band welcoming Stella Rennex (Parsnip, Thibault, Smarts) on bass.


After playing saxophone on Care (as well as for the likes of King Gizzard, ORB and Bananagun), Rennex will join CLAMM as their permanent bassist. She replaces departing member Maisie Everest, who’s leaving to focus on Belair Lip Bombs, a band she fronts. “So excited to head out on an Australian tour with our new bass player Stella,” CLAMM wrote on social media.

The Care LP explores the confusion of what it is to be a young person “trying to live an honourable life in this fucked up world”. It contains the single ‘Bit Much’, which featured on Music Feeds‘ list of our 50 favourite Australian songs of 2022.
