Australian rock band POND announced their tenth studio album Stung!, scheduled for release on June 21, 2024, via Spinning Top Records. Formed in 2016, the band has consisted of Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson, Shiny Joe Ryan, Jamie Terry and James Ireland. Stung!’s announcement is accompanied by the band’s new single, “(I’m) Stung,” which was released on March 27. 

“I wrote most of this while mowing someone’s lawn. I went home and put my fingers on the piano and pretty much played the base of it first go. This is a very rare and special treat and buoyed me for weeks. It’s funny because I had a mad crush on someone, and they dropped me like a sack of shit and this song just flew down and clocked me right in the forehead and I felt totally better. Then Gin and Gum added all their magic – cool sounds, passing chords.”

Stung! will consist of four sides — A, B, C and D — and has an estimated running time of 54 minutes.

Preorder Stung! now.

The title Stung! began as a reference to having a crush on someone that they began to use this so often, they decided to make it a name. They remain stung with music and with the world.
