Italian garage-punk tearaways SMALLTOWN TIGERS are back for the Chinese Year of the Tiger.
To celebrate, they’ve just released a video of their cover of Columbus OH action-rockers New Bomb Turks’ ‘Girl Can Help It’.
The track was originally recorded for the album ‘Defiled! A Heavy Medication Tribute To New Bomb Turks‘, released last year.
The band dropped their debut mini-album Five Things to worldwide acclaim in the Spring of 2020, deep in the first lockdown, meaning their accompanying UK tour was first postponed and then cancelled. The girls from Rimini are now determined to make up for it.
As previously announced, they’ll be opening for The Damned on their reunion dates in the Autumn. They’ll also be playing Some Weird Sin’s Pump It Up! Powerpop Weekender in July, alongside Baby Shakes, Duncan Reid & The Big Heads and more…
Dates so far are…
3 July – The Lexington, London (Pump It Up! Powerpop Weekender)
28 Oct – Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, London (w/ The Damned etc)
29 Oct – Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, London (w/ The Damned etc)
3 Nov – O2 Apollo, Manchester (w/ The Damned etc)
