Tropical Fuck Storm have announced a few new tour dates.
The Aussie band will play a show at London’s Dingwalls on 8th May, followed by The Great Escape and nights in Liverpool, Dublin, Glasgow and Newcastle.
The news arrives with a new video for ‘The Planet Of Straw Men’, which is out soon on 7” backed by a cover of Missy Elliott’s ‘Can’t Stop’.
The band explain: “In a world where dissident writers are drawn and quartered, communists wear Rolexes, and Trump drives around with a fridge-full of blood; Tropical Fuck Storm’s new single is testament to the jesters duty.
“The Planet of Straw Men revives TFS’s art punk manoeuvres with a political snarl that pulls your head in, without calling you out. Lauren Hummel’s drums open the tune like a sonic mirage of a call to arms.
“The swagger of Fiona Kitschin’s bassline is as insecure as a parliamentary promise. Erica Dunn’s uncorked guitars frolic throughout the track like a shit-faced fist fight. In this bare-knuckle ceremony, TFS have made a song and dance of diplomacies suit-clad delusions of grandeur.
““They want the glory of a coup de gras!” spits Gareth Liddiard; a broken bottle reminder that General Jack D. Ripper’s red-cap reincarnation is running the show – and how unsatirical this whole joke is.”
