From the ‘Moonburn’, Maxi-Single Cassette & 7” Vinyl Out August 26th on Joyful Noise Recordings

“There are few artists better suited to essay this wild, paranoid era than Gareth Liddiard.” – MOJO, 4/5“Woozy yet spiky guitars that ricochet between cacophonous fury and simmering tension underpin the band’s sound, as it traverses across as many genres as it eschews.” – Uncut, 8/10In Tropical Fuck Storm’s determination to engage as fully as possible with the reality of human existence, in all its ugliness and contradictions, they are tapping into its truths. The results might be uncompromising, but they’re soulful too.”  The Quietus“Consistently inventive, thrillingly unpredictable and steeped in deadpan Australian humour.”– Classic Rock, 8/10
“Heavier, wilder and more faithful to their evocative ‘fuck storm’ promise than ever before.” – DIYTropical Fu*k Storm continue their hot streak of brain-bending releases with Moonburn, a maxi-single cassette out today on Joyful Noise Recordings. To celebrate its release, the band are sharing its tense, meandering and, ultimately, colossal title track – a ballad in the classic TFS style of which Gareth Liddiard writes, “‘Moonburn’ is about not being able to hide from everything or anyone. But in the end, who cares? Everyone’s a fuck up. It’s like what Billy Joel sings: “you’re only human, woohoo!” ‘Moonburn’ is like that Billy Joel song, except better. “Listen to ‘Moonburn’ here.TFS previously announced Moonburn with a cover of The Stooges‘ ‘Ann‘. Bassist Fiona Kitschin steps up to the microphone on a cover that swaps Ron Asheton‘s scorching guitar part for a deranged sound collage of guitar freakouts, siren noises, and electronics. It came accompanied by a video directed by Sam Mapplebeck, which Liddiard calls “a cheap shit DIY, high explosive puppeteering miniature concert shrinkage film clip.” 
Watch the Clip for Tropical Fuck Storm’s ‘Ann’ (The Stooges Cover).
Alongside ‘Moonburn’ and ‘Ann’, the cassette also includes an acoustic take on the fan-favourite song ‘Aspirin (Slight Return)‘ and a haunting cover of Talking Heads‘ ‘Heaven‘.
