Bio

Formed in Melbourne in 2016, Catholic Guilt are best mates Brenton Harris and Bryce Novotny. Catholic Guilt write raw, emotional and disarmingly honest music for the internally conflicted masses, blending elements of folk, punk, rock and alt-country to create an unashamedly vulnerable, yet ultimately uplifting and cathartic listening experience. Having shared stages with artists the ilk of The Ramshackle Army, The Bottlers, Luke Seymoup, Fox 'n' Firkin, The Suicide Tuesdays, Billy Punton, Semen and Garfuckle, Phil Wolfendale, Luke Warm Iced Tea and Operation Ibis, Catholic Guilt are road-tested and ready to convert the masses. through 2018 with a debut EP titled Hymnbook Volume 1 dropping in early April, extensive touring plans, (with a full backing band added for appropriate dates) let their honest music into your ears and they’ll make believers out of your soul

I love that moment at about 3:20 mins where you nail that restrained power with that cut back guitar. Then it ramps up into this full sounding chorus - the icing on the cake. It's solid rock with little punk / folk elements to it! Keen to hear more.
