Bio

Melbourne’s Catholic Guilt write raw, emotional and disarmingly honest music for the internally conflicted masses, blending elements of punk, rock, folk and alt-country to create a sound they describe as ‘honest music’.

Released in April, 2018 in a jam-packed Reverence Hotel, the band’s debut EP Hymnbook Volume 1 struck a chord with listeners worldwide, with the sonically diverse yet still cohesive collection of songs earning rave reviews from fans and media outlets alike.

Singles “Counterfeit Guitars” and “Paper and Ink” received frequent airplay on Triple J, including a coveted spot on 2018 with Richard Kingsmill, Home and Hosed with Declan Byrne, “Paper and Ink” finding particular favour with Short.Fast.Loud host Joshua Merriel who included the track in his top 10 releases of 2018.

Having hit stages all-across the Aussie eastern seaboard in 2018, in support of some of the Aussie scenes best acts, Catholic Guilt hit 2019 in blistering form with the fierce anti-church child abuse cover up anthem “The Awful Truth” debuting on Triple J and landing on multiple Spotify editorial playlists, with the accompanying video picking up over 10k views and the band packing out the Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood for the launch.

Fresh off the success of “The Awful Truth” and having their now iconic “Lucy Furr” shirt, BANNED from several schools, workplaces and churches (yes, really) Catholic Guilt look to keep the momentum going with follow up single “Song of the Renter” a distinctly Australian flavoured rocker with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a defiant punk rock spirit which will be released on Friday 15 November.

The band intends to go on a full touring cycle with a fresh full-band lineup after the release of Song of the Renter.
