The Smith Street Band
From enormous festivals like Reading and Leeds (UK), Groezrock (Belgium) and Splendour In The Grass (Australia) to stageless squats and dive bars all around the world, The Smith Street Band have seen it all and they’ve poured those experiences into their boldest and most ambitious release to date - their fourth album, More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me.

Debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts (Australia) More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me is at times dark, ferocious and heavy, while also being joyful, cheeky and full of the underdog spirit that made the band who they are. This record embodies the cohesion and growth shown by the band both musically and lyrically. Known for their breathless touring schedule the album was pieced together in the stolen downtime between their famously frenetic live shows.

The album’s twelve tracks follow lead singer Wil Wagner, more relatable and vulnerable than ever, as he tells the story of a relationship. While their past albums have had stories scattered through the songs, More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me follows a powerful narrative that is defined by Wagner’s heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics and frantic delivery of the words that mean so much to him.

On top of Wil’s growth and development as a songwriter the band are in powerful form after years of consistent touring. They have expanded their unique sound to fit in choirs, string sections, even synthesisers and electronic drum kits. This is The Smith Street Band at their passionate, heartbreaking, hope-tinged best.

Recorded in California at Panoramic House, the record also features a world class cast behind the desk. The sessions were produced by longtime friend and collaborator Jeff Rosenstock, engineered by Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Deafheaven, Hard Girls), mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., The Hold Steady) and mastered by Greg Calbi (Bob Dylan, Ramones, Bruce Springsteen).

More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me is an exploration into love, anxiety, relationships and nostalgia, following on from where 2014’s breakthrough album, Throw Me In The River left us.


"Wil Wagner is like the Australian Frank Turner. He’s sing-shouts with the same taut balance of earnestness and no-fucks-to-give.....the 12-song collection ensnares listeners with its tight song structures, yelping melodies and energy delivered via middle-of-the-neck pitched guitar riffs.” Paste Magazine
