Every Story Has Two Sides is the hotly anticipated follow-up to The Pleasures’ barnstorming debut single The Beginning of the End, which peaked at #23 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart.

As two of Australia’s most loved and respected country and Americana artists, the union between Catherine Britt and Lachlan Bryan was destined to turn heads – and The Beginning of the End certainly did that.

“Now it’s time for the next chapter,” says Bryan of the new single. “Far from being a token duet, Every Story has Two Sides couldn’t exist without the both of us. It’s as much an argument as it is a song - filled with passion and desperation – when we sing this live it feels like we’re actually screaming at each other – and it felt like that in the studio too.”

Every Story Has Two Sides is out Friday 9th September 2022 while The Pleasures’ debut full-length album is currently in the works and set for release later in 2023.

The new release will coincide with The Pleasures’ second short Southeastern tour, including a festival appearance at Dashville Skyline and live dates in Victoria and NSW. The band includes multi-instrumentalists Damian Cafarella and Brad Bergen on bass and drums, respectively.

"It's very exciting to be releasing another taste of this raucous project and to be hitting the road with the band again,” says Britt. “Every bit of this record screams heartbreak and sticky pub floors and this next single is no exception to that!”

Released in January through Beverley Hillbilly Records/MGM, The Beginning of the End quickly lit up YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music, as well as scoring high rotation on Double J, ABC Country, ABC Local and iHeart Country. Add to that the support of CMT in Australia and the USA, and airplay on many programs in the UK, including shows across the BBC.

The classic country/Americana track is full of sass, spark, and excitement, with themes of recklessness and lust abound.

Upon release, Bryan said, “I don’t think know anyone else who feels and understands country music the way Catherine does. She sounds authentic because she is authentic. When she opens her mouth and sings you can hear the neon lights buzzing, you can taste the tequila and you can barely see for the cloud of smoke. It’s all that stuff that people try and fake – they try and put in on – but it’s like she was just born with it”.
