Adventurous Sydney outfit BELL WEATHER DEPARTMENT present their all guns blazing new single 'Asterisk'.

In this catchy as hell episode, 'Asterisk' multiplies the audacious, kaleidoscopic take on pop the group are renowned for with a pulsing attack that never lets up. Marching beats, hooky guitars & swooping sound bites of prey are all at large in what is to be a very memorable chapter for the band.

Previous quests have seen BELL WEATHER DEPARTMENT conquer stages up & down the east coast of Australia alongside the crème de la crème of this countries indie scene (the holidays, boy & bear, papa vs pretty, ernest ellis, dz deathrays, hunting grounds & wim), scoring rave reviews for their killer live shows, major props from many an über blog online & sweet digs nation-wide via the wireless.

'Asterisk' by BELL WEATHER DEPARTMENT will be released 6th April 2012 thru The A&R Department & will be supported by extensive dates throughout Australia over the next few months starting on 4th May at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory.

i'm not healing up
i know my heads not coming home
there's a time for selling up
now that we're moving to the unknown

pick the fruit from the tree
grow it up feed the machinery
flick the switch, turn it off
when it's done shutdown the factory

come & find a space
& we'll walk along
we're searching for something
but looking into nothing
