Crack Cloud Pain Olympics

Crack Cloud, have announced their new album Pain Olympics will drop on July 17th, via Meat Machine. The group will tour England and Ireland in support of the album. The news is accompanied by a new video for the record’s lead single “Ouster Stew.”

Crack Cloud founded on community spirit and communal freedom. They have a philosophy, and one that they are not afraid to wear on their sleeves. While their anarchic, phantasmagorical visuals, heavy use of symbology, and seemingly never-ending cast of colourful collaborators have often invited cult comparisons, this really does the collective no justice. There is no apocalyptic death drive here; no cult of personality; no hierarchy of power. While frontman and lyricist Zach Choy is in many ways the face of the group, the collective is one founded on equality, and in his cryptic lyrical blending of poetics, polemics and personal experience, Choy is truly the mouthpiece of something far larger than himself.

Crack Cloud operate on the frontline of Canada’s out-of-control opiate crisis, mobilising and organising in Vancouver’s harm reduction programmes. The group themselves have had their fair share of trauma, and the collective offers its members a vital vehicle for rehabilitation and recovery. As the tagline on the album’s back cover makes clear then, this is absolutely ‘based on true shit.’
