Osaka Punch have had an incredible year so far – releasing new single STONK and touring it, signing to Bird’s Robe Records, supporting Dead Letter Circus, re-releasing their LP ‘Voodoo Love Machine and jumping on to tour with The Fall of Troy, Closure in Moscow and Meniscus! Ahead of those dates, Osaka Punch are releasing two INSANELY TIGHT live studio playthrough videos to show people what they are made of ahead of the shows, which take place Tuesday-Thursday next week in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Anyone who has seen a live Osaka Punch show knows just how hard skinsman Dane Pulvirenti goes on the kit. But get a load of this drum playthrough of instrumental track Battle Worm from ‘Voodoo Love Machine.’ Insane skill, technique and sheer awesomeness/metal/weirdness all combine to form a Voltron of sick drumming. All kinds of angles are covered in the video. If you ever wanted to feel like you were behind the kit/you were the drummer in the band… this is the video for you.
While Osaka Punch are at it, hell, they are throwing some more awesomeness in. They are also today announcing that they will join Dead Letter Circus in Western Australia for the tail-end of their The Burning Number tour in August/September.
The band also has a brand new EP to release before the end of the year, which will come with it’s own tour in late 2016 as well.
Voodoo Love Machine has been garnering plenty of high praise for it’s re-release, especially, ironically, from I Probably Hate Your Band.
“Voodoo Love Machine is such a goddamn fun album to listen to. There’s so much going on in every song yet you’re never overwhelmed or feel the need to hit pause and just digest. Nothing is out of place even when they’re switching from pop and funk sections into heavy metal blast beats and harsh vocals. Voodoo Love Machine is not just some eclectic album by some nobody local band; Voodoo Love Machine is a goddamn masterpiece of fun, and if you haven’t lit the candles, grabbed the oils and just let it take you yet, then you’re seriously missing out.”
