CHUMPS is the second single from Odlaw’s upcoming debut album Regret-City. due out in early 2017.
CHUMPS was written after the 2015 WAM Festival and conference, so it only seems fitting that they would launch it during the 2016 WAM Festival. Songwriter Mark Neal keeps himself busy, between acting as manager for other bands, booking gigs, working on various events, and doing radio on RTRFM. These opportunities have earnt him an interesting perspective into the background discussions surrounding an event like WAM Festival.
CHUMPS was written about a discussion respected members of the music community were having about a particular individual who falls into a category referred to as ‘punishers’. A ‘punisher’ is someone who is annoying as all fuck, and often the artist he represents is terrible or irrelevant. In particular this ‘punisher’ was so annoying he causes major labels and industry leaders to vacate a venue, which in turn could mean a hard working band/artist misses out on a well-deserved opportunity because there's no important industry people watching them play.
If you don’t know a ‘punisher’ then you could be a ‘punisher’.
CHUMPS is about a certain ‘punisher’ that was discussed in great detail at WAM Festival last year. “I can’t remember his name, I’ve never met him, but I hear he kinda sucks.” Mark recants “oblivious is selfish is a direct quote from a festival director about this person” Mark asked if he hated him, he replied with “I don’t hate him, he’s just oblivious, and that’s selfish” Mark also thinks this person was referred to as “A Piece of shit” later in the evening.
ODLAW celebrate the launch of CHUMPS on Friday November 4 at Jimmy’s Den, Northbridge. Teaming up with Sail On! Sail On! And Spilt Cities for a three way launch party.

ODLAW head out on run of WA dates throughout July and August
“Full of frenetic energy. Nice work” Dom Alessio, Triple J
“It's a straight-up balltearer” Sonic Masala
“very nice indeed” Caitlin Nienaber, RTRfm
Fresh off playing a run of shows supporting their 2015 debut EP ‘Soup Herb’, featuring on the 2015 Kiss my WAMi compilation, and playing at events like HyperFest, Kickstart Festival, and Hair of the Dog fest, Perth indie-rock four piece ODLAW hit the studio with legendary producer Dave Parkin (Tired Lion, Emperors, The Love Junkies)
In March Odlaw launched the first single off their upcoming album ‘Regret City’. Shortly after, they returned to the studio to record a few more tracks, and start piecing the album together. Amidst debates over track order, guitarist and vocalist Mark Neal was admitted to hospital with a heart attack.
“it didn’t really hurt, it just felt weird. It felt like, what a heart attack looks like in the movies, there was a weight on my chest and my left arm went numb”
“the nurses were getting ready to let me go after a couple of hours in the ER, when a test result came back positive. A few hours later I’m being woken up at 4am and someone’s telling me I had a heart attack. They let me go three days later, the doctors said a virus had attacked my heart. A friend told me, that’s not really a heart attack. He’s probably right, even though it has both the words ‘heart’ and ‘attack’ in the definition.”
Full of over-exaggerated drama, the first single ‘Coyote’ off their upcoming album is out now, head along to some shows, buy some merch, and hear a whole bunch of new songs.
