Tropical Fuck Storm: "The Planet of Straw Men" 7"

"All paths lead to nowhere; and it all adds up nothing..." 

Yes, there's a new Tropical Fuck Storm single out. And, yes, you should listen to it.

The splintery observation punk of Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Lauren Hammel, and Erica Dunn has produced a new single called "The Planet of Straw Men." Joyful Noise is releasing the single on May 3rd as a limited-edition neon orange variant and black vinyl. A Tropical Fuck Storm interpretation of Missy Elliott's "Can't Stop" will grace the b-side.



The single is currently available for pre-order via Joyful Noise.

Tropical Fuck Storm's excellent 2018 release Laughing Death in Meatspace was reviewed for No Ripcord. If "The Planet of Straw Men" does anything for you, the band's debut LP should be an immediate acquisition. You can find that here.
