Tasmanian rockers Luca Brasi have just announced that their sixth album, The World Don’t Owe You Anything, will be released via Cooking Vinyl Australia on Friday, 29 September.

To accompany the album announcement, Luca Brasi unveiled the superb title track, a number that sees vocalist Tyler Richardson ask, “If I’ve already sung all the good words I have left, what good am I to anyone?” – a question immediately answered emphatically by the song’s chorus – “THE WORLD DON’T OWE YOU ANYTHING.”

"When I started mapping out the songs on this record lyrically, I noticed a recurring theme of a guy who was kinda grappling with the fear of losing everything he had fought so hard for," Richardson explained in a press release. "In those moments of doubt, it's easy to feel like the world has let you down.

“But I've come to realise that everything I've ever achieved in life has been the result of working my arse off. It's a reminder that when you get low, you have to pull yourself up because the world ain't gonna do it for you. The world don't owe you anything."

The World Don’t Owe You Anything was engineered by the band’s Pat Marshall and produced by the band in collaboration with Ben Stewart at Pudding’s House of Flavour and Banana Pig Studios. You can pre-order the album here.

The album announcement follows a recent heartwarming story from Luca Brasi, who looked out for 14-year-old Charlie in Hobart, who received a scathing letter from a neighbour due to his drumming.

"Whilst you may think you are a great drummer, quite frankly you're not very good, which makes it even worse for those of us around here who have to put up with it," the neighbour wrote in the letter. The harsh tone of the note sent to Charlie’s parents resulted in some calling for the author to come forward and address the family in person.

Responding to the original story on 13 January, Luca Brasi wrote, "Playing music has given us incredible experiences and memories we’ll cherish forever. I hope this young person isn’t at all deterred and keeps honing their craft so they can do what we’ve done one day if they so wish. And if they want to get in touch, we could probably send them a few sets of Luca Brasi signature drum sticks…." 

In February, the band actually did meet Charlie and said he's "bloody good at drums and a legend." The band visited Charlie and held a drumming session with him, with drummer Danny Flood gifting Charlie his drumsticks. 

The World Don’t Owe You Anything is the band’s follow-up to 2021’s Everything Is Tenuous.
