Stepson - Brisbane's most high-octane punk/hardcore outfit, have recently signed worldwide with Sharptone Records. Their debut album "Help Me, Help You" (out March 26th) was produced, mixed and mastered by Callan Orr of Avalanche Studios (Dream on Dreamer, Young Lions, Hands Like Houses)

After a turbulent 2020 and the dissapointment of delaying not only their debut album but their maiden European voyage, no pandemic is holding Australia's most genre twisting hardcore band back in 2021.

"Help Me, Help You" was created from a shared passion of heavy music in all its facets, with an amalgamation of melody, ferocity and angst that sets each of the 11 songs apart in their own unique, fresh way, whilst still bearing the trademark Stepson sound.
There is more depth to the musicianship on the band first LP compared to previous releases, with some of the 5-piece's most adventurous riffs and intesne drums fills to date, meanwhile long time fans of the band will recognise the fimiliar lyrical themes having new life breathed in to them by frontman Brock Alan Conry.

There is something for everyone on "Help Me, Help You" in what will undoubtably serve up to one of 2021's most versatile debut albums. Stepson are ready to take on the world.

Very loud and thrashing in a pool of anguish.
