TNSrecords announces 2017 UK tour (Wonk Unit, Faintest Idea, Roughneck Riot, Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man)

UK label TNSrecords has announced a 2017 UK tour, featuring Wonk Unit, Faintest Idea, Roughneck Riot, and Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man. Check out the dates/locations, along with the full tour poster below.

Speaking about the tour, Bev and Andy from TNS say, “We wanted to put together a lineup that showcased the diverse range of sounds on the label (and in the DIY punk rock scene in general). We also wanted to bring together a lineup of some of the bands we have been working with for many years and who are some of the most active bands in the DIY scene right now. These bands are all involved in booking their own gigs and supporting DIY music alongside their own live commitments.”

If you’re heading out to one of these shows, make sure you get there early (as you always should to shows), because the order of bands for each show won’t be announced until the night of the show. The move is meant to encourage everyone to show up to watch all the bands play, and I for one love the idea.

Ok, so it’s already April and with Manchester Punk Festival right around the corner you’d be forgiven for thinking that the team behind one of the UK’s biggest dedicated punk rock festivals would be a little lazy on the monthly compilation front.

Faintest Idea (ska, UK) announce release date and supporting tour for new record “Increasing The Minimum Rage”

UK ska-core outfit Faintest Idea have announced April 1st, 2016 as the release date for their much anticipated album “Increasing The Minimum Rage” out on TNS Records. To help support the release the band have also planned a short stint of tour dates around the UK. Details of the tour can be viewed below.

I managed to have a brief listen to a pre-release copy of the record whilst writing this news feature up and it’s everything you’d expect from Faintest Idea. It’s raw, powerful, laden with great brass hooks and super-polictically charged anthems which will likely excite fans of crack-rock bands such as Leftover Crack as much as it will more traditional ska bands and even UK street-punk listeners. It’s a great release from one of the biggest purveyors of ska-core that the UK currently has to offer and features guest performances from the likes of Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers) and Sean Howe (Random Hand).

Speaking about the new release the band had the following to say:

“The new record sounds heavier both musically and lyrically than our previous releases. With free market capitalism still rampant things don’t look too great for the younger generation. The album is a reflection of the time we find ourselves in, it is the sound of people trying to keep hope in a seemingly bleak future.”

A teaser track “Circling The Drain” can be listened to below.
