BORDER punk/alternative rock outfit Snug Pugs will launch their debut album in Albury on Friday night.
The eight-track album, Thursdays, is the culmination of two years' work.
Snug Pugs members Kodie Keighran, Felix Hunter and Mackenzie Hunter have been developing their song list since they formed the band 2-1/2 years ago.
Keighran said Thursdays was recorded in a converted-garage-studio at his family's East Albury home.
"We recorded it in the studio at my place and we did all of the mixing," he said.
"We have about 25 original songs so we have some that didn't make the first album."
OTHER ENTERTAINMENT NEWS:
The former Albury High School students were mates before they realised they had similar interests in music.
Felix Hunter said they had a mutual interest in American rock band Blink-182.
"We all liked Blink-182, which helped start the band," he said.
"Our music does not sound like them though; we're more into metal, rap and punk."
They're influenced by Australian bands Dune Rats, Violent Soho and Skegss.
Band members credit Keighran's mum Susan with their unique band name.
Snug Pugs will be joined at the album launch by Pablo Pace, Lauren Eddy and Dungeon Dwellers.
Thursdays is available through streaming services now.
Snug Pugs merchandise will be available for sale at the album launch.
