SIGNAL BOOST: Tropical Fuck Storm Announce Sophomore LP “Braindrops”

After dropping a pair of singles, the Aussie art rockers have settled on August 23 for their second Joyful Noise release.

If the name Tropical Fuck Storm hasn’t already grabbed your attention—or the name of their debut, A Laughing Death in Meatspace, or it’s album cover—now’s your chance to jump on the Fuck wagon. Specializing in gruff witticisms regarding our imminent demise and woozy hard-rock guitars, TFS kept up their unique energy on recent singles “The Planet of Straw Men” and “Paradise,” which will both appear on their forthcoming Meatspace follow-up, Braindrops

“I’ve invented fake news as a genre of music,” frontman Gareth Liddiard warns of the record, perhaps citing the panicked urgency and sinister nature of their recordings—or maybe just saying something weird and cryptic for the hell of it. Find out for yourself with a stream of “Paradise,” and brace yourself for the TF Storm to hit your city per the dates below.

Braindrops is out August 23 via Joyful Noise. You can pre-order it here—and you can grab a 7-inch of “Straw Men” (b/w *double-checks notes* a Missy Elliott cover) here.
