Is Tropical To Release New Single

1946 eeb5cc47f9f13c20f28b4fc1da678cd6IS TROPICAL are set to release a new single on KITSUNÉ /CO-OP on the 31st of October 2011.

‘Lies’ is the follow up to the recent ‘The Greeks’ single with its now legendary video (clocking up over 2,000,000 views and counting on Youtube) and is the third single to be lifted from the band’s debut album ‘Native to’, which was released in June this year.

Formed in 2009, the IS TROPICAL line up of Gary Barber (Vocals / Guitar / keys), Simon Milner (Vocals / Guitars / Keys) and Dominic Apa (Drums) have developed a worldwide reputation for their stunning live shows. Taking to the stage in their trademark masks, and cloaked by self-made video projections, they improvise constantly changing soundscapes, effortlessly swooping from raw pop anthems to lo-fi dance songs with fantastic results.

To coincide with the new single IS TROPICAL will be touring the UK tour in September. The band wind up the dates with their last London show of the year at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen on the 4th of October 2011. After these dates the band will be heading out to Europe and to the US for their first American tour.
