Iron Chic are just over a week away from their Australian tour in support of their fantastic third full-length album, ‘You Can’t Stay Here‘, which came out back in October via SideOneDummy.

You Can’t Stay Here‘ is the Long Island punk group’s first new album since 2013’s ‘The Constant One‘, and addresses the same big questions that have plagued the band from their outset: anxiety, mortality, life, death, what it all means, etc. But this record became so much more after the unexpected loss of guitarist Rob McAllister in January 2016.

You Can’t Stay Here‘ transformed into a sort of coping mechanism for the bandmates; some of the tracks had even been written with McAllister, compounding the shared pain of his absence.

The themes of ‘You Can’t Stay Here‘ are undoubtedly dark, yes, but the externalization of them — casting them into light and setting them to a fierce, determined melody — is a cry for survival and perseverance. This album is a tribute to fortitude, not weakness. Iron Chic has been through one hell of a fucking year, but they’re still standing, and they made this record together.

Order the album on Gold vinyl [Here].

Tickets for the Australian tour are currently available for all shows if you want in.
