Brisbane punk icons Flangipanis have three times the good news today! They’ve got a new EP on the way called Community Backwash (out September 26th) and they’ve launched the first single from it, ‘Piss In Your Beer‘ which is, well pretty self-explanatory once you see the video below.
The EP will also be released on 7″ with green on clear splatter vinyl for all of you vinyl collectors, keep an eye out for it here.
On the forthcoming release, vocalist/legend Jodie Lawlor says:
“We travelled down to Sydney to record Community Backwash at the Pet food Factory. We wanted to capture a more realistic sound for flange, and a lot of the music that Jay had recorded there reflected where we wanted to go with this EP. Always the Bridesmaid did really well for us in 2018 – though we went a little all out and it didn’t capture what we do live. Community Backwash is a spurt of 7 songs in 7 inches – it’s a lot more straight forward and we reckon he nailed it.”
And the band are hitting the road in celebration of the news too. You can catch them playing a string of shows between October and December, bringing the hilarity everywhere they stop.
