NEWS: Tropical F*ck Storm share a ton of news including Moonburn maxi-single cassette, release cover of The Stooges ‘Ann’ as a single and EU dates

Australia’s Tropical F*ck Storm announce Moonburn, a maxi-single cassette out 26 August on Joyful Noise Recordings. They also present one of its singles, a cover of The Stooges‘ ‘Ann‘. Bassist Fiona Kitschin steps up to the microphone on a cover that swaps Ron Asheton’s scorching guitar part for a deranged sound collage of guitar freakouts, siren noises, and electronics. It’s accompanied by a video directed by Sam Mapplebeck, which Tropical F*ck Storm’s Gareth Liddiard calls:

“a cheap shit DIY, high explosive puppeteering miniature concert shrinkage film clip.” 

Side A of the cassette also offers the new song, ‘Moonburn‘, a ballad in the classic Tropical F*ck Storm style written and sung by Liddiard. Side B includes an acoustic take on the fan-favourite song ‘Aspirin (Slight Return)’ and a haunting cover of Talking Heads‘ ‘Heaven’.

Tropical F*ck Storm will tour across North America and Europe this autumn – including a newly-announced London show at Studio 9294 on 30 September. A full list of dates can be found further below and tickets for all shows are on sale now.
