Brisbane Punk Trio SQUARE TUGS Release New Single ‘Everything’s Been Said’

After the success of Fat, Drunk, Stupid, SQUARE TUGS release their follow up track Everything’s Been Said today (17th May). It’s a short sharp shock of a song very much in keeping with the early hardcore sound that was coming out of the US in the early 1980’s. The video will be released soon.

Everything’s Been Said was written by Davey Boy Tug who had recorded a rough demo at home. The band then worked together to mould the song into a classic ‘Tugs track. Clocking in at only one minute and ten seconds, the song is driven by the rhythm section and features a strong melody, with passionate vocals. Working with producer Jason Millhouse at
Recordworks studio in Brisbane, the track was recorded extremely quickly with the band recording live in the studio to get the drum track down. The bass and guitar tracks were then overdubbed, and Davey’s vocal recorded in one take.

Fans may be surprised by the emotional lyrical content of this new track which explores the last throes of a relationship…the diminishing hope and ultimate realisation it isn’t going to work. This track is a preview of the sound and depth of subject matter featured on the upcoming debut album out later this year.


Square Tugs started as a side project in mid-2020 playing the iconic ‘Group Sex’ album by 80’s hardcore punk pioneers Circle Jerks along with other Circle Jerks favourites and covers from The Ramones, Black Flag, Pennywise, Bad Religion and 7 Seconds. They are all about bringing people together and encouraging fun nights out for the love of punk rock.

The band are dedicated music fans and have been great friends after being part of the Brisbane punk scene since the 80’s. They formed after Davey’s mission to get Paulie back on stage after a 22 year break was finally successful. He and Randy hatched a plan and convinced Paulie a Circle Jerks cover band was a great idea.

The trio quickly gained a reputation as a fun live band with a solid following playing regularly in and around Brisbane. The band is currently in the studio working on their Debut Album, due for release later in the year.

The Square Tugs are Davey Boy Tug on guitar and vocals (Bad Ronald, Ringpull, Strange Stains, Roughriders), Randy Tug on drums (General Waste), and Paulie Tug on bass and vocals (Crucified Truth, The Warthogs).
