LISTEN: Salad Boys Share “No Taste Bomber”

New Zealand's finest non-comedic musical group air out their angst.

Earlier this summer, when we were all still full of hope and excitement and hadn’t yet had to pry our melted sneaker soles from the hot asphalt, New Zealand’s Salad Boys released the sunny, Replacements-flecked single “Dream Date.” And now that summer has had its way with us and left us longing for the comforts of fall, they’re granting us some reprieve with “No Taste Bomber,” a darker, stormier cut from their debut LP, Metalmania. The track finds the trio working in the shade of a dark jangle that gives way to a moody guitar workout. Take refuge below.

Salad Boys will be embarking on a lengthy tour in support of Metalmania, beginning September 23 at Chicago’s bad-decision factory The Owl. Those dates are below.
