NEWS: PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS release new single ‘Acid Dent’, from fifth album ‘Night Gnomes’ and confirm UK and European tour

Australia’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets share their new single ‘Acid Dent’, lifted from their fifth studio album Night Gnomes set for release Friday 22 April via Marathon Artists / What Reality? Records.

Acid Dent’ references the effects of psychedelics.  Vocalist Jack McEwan takes listeners on a trip of his own, as he explains:

“My goodwill ‘Drugs are bad for you kids’ song. And to be perfectly honest they probably are. But good luck telling that to the youth of today I tell ya! It’s not like that safe ‘60s pot we used to smoke. Not like the prescribed methamphetamine us ‘50s housewives were doing! Not like that Cretic Wine us Romans would devour.

Every generation has their means of escapism and for some reason here in Perth, or at least when we were in our heyday you could purchase mushrooms and acid from any decent supermarket. So it’s inevitable we’re gonna be munching jumpers and chatting to fences in a few decades, but as for now, well… we’ve seemed to somehow milk a career out of it. Who’d have thought. But yeah, it’s probably not going to end well, hence my newly appointed position on drug safety. Then again, someone also once told me, “Hell hath no fury like a man who’s pressed pause on his drug abuse”, so now I’m slightly more perplexed as to where I stand. Anyway, good luck to everyone, enjoy yourselves but remember nobody wants to pick up your marbles after.”

The video for ‘Acid Dent‘ is an animation gem telling the story of a guy who after a freak accident is granted the powers to melt everything he touches and how it escalates in a comedy of errors throughout the video.  fantastically entertaining and imaginative.

Jack McEwan also describes the band’s fifth album Night Gnomes as:
“a summary of everything we’ve previously released, a nice package for new fans to enjoy but also a nod to the ‘High Visceral’ days for the older fans.”
