Watch Crack Cloud announce second album ‘Tough Baby’

The Vancouver collective will follow up 2020’s ‘Pain Olympics’ later this year.

Vancouver collective Crack Cloud have announced plans to release their second album later this year.

The group - who released their debut ‘Pain Olympics’ back in 2020 - have confirmed they’ll release their new record ‘Tough Baby’ on 16th September via Meat Machine. “The name ‘Tough Baby’ is an allusion to our Planet,” says Zach Choy, the band’s frontman, drummer and lyricist. “To our Culture. And to our Selves.”

While the album will be ten tracks in length, today they’ve also shared its first taste, in the form of new track ‘Please Yourself’. Watch the video - which delves into how “art is a mechanism for healing and discovery” - below.

The tracklisting for ‘Tough Baby’ is as follows.

1. Danny’s Message
2. The Politician
3. Costly Engineered Illusion
4. Please Yourself
5. Virtuous Industry
6. Tough Baby
