Gus Baldwin & The Sketch shares "Relief" single & video, launches West Coast tour incl. Punk Rock Bowling

“Just goes to show you can still be catchy as hell while playing really fucking loud... I'm not entirely sure there's a single that can capture the live energy the drips from the stage when Gus Baldwin & The Sketch are up there, but this brand new single is pretty damn close.” — Austin Town Hall

Austin Power Punk artist Gus Baldwin shares the official video for his new single "Relief" today via Austin Town Hall. Watch "Relief" video HERE (Direct YouTube.) Hear/share "Relief" via Bandcamp and all DSPs.

Gus Baldwin & The Sketch kick off Western U.S. tour dates today, including a performance at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas. The tour starts with a hometown kickoff tonight at Hotel Vegas. Please see all dates below. 

Gus Baldwin is a 25-year-old singer/songwriter/ex-hippie/part-time punk hailing from Austin, TX. After a stint holding down drums for Dallas surf punk legends Sealion in high school, Baldwin went on to form the Psych Pop combo Acid Carousel, which he led for 6 years and 20 something releases before departing the band on Halloween night 2021. 

Since leaving Carousel, Gus has made a name for himself as a solo artist in Austin, constantly performing as a singer/songwriter, one man garage band, or with his band The Sketch. Quickly releasing a string of titles on his own GetWithIt! Records imprint, including the EPs “THRILLER II”, “Live Bugs”, as well as a slew of singles, Gus established himself firmly as the godson of Texas rock'n’ roll. Splitting his time as a frequent collaborator with The Black Angels, Baldwin also works with the likes of Christian Bland & The Revelators as well as The UFO Club with Night Beats frontman, Danny Lee Blackwell.
