Our next single 'Virus' is released on September 17th on Xtra Mile Recordings. It will soon be hitting radios across the land but after one listen to the tune the crew on the X-Posure show on XFM deemed the tune its 'Big One' for the week and grabbed the first play last night! You can check out the show over at the XFM site HERE and tune in on 104.9 FM tonight and for the rest of the week when they'll be dropping the tune every night! The single will be available on digital download on September 17th and includes two fantastic b-sides... a live recording of our 'Dangers of Rock n Roll / Friday Night / It Doesn't Matter' medley and a remix of 'Virus' by the fantastic Subsource.
In other incredible news we are proud that we can now confirm that the support for all dates of our November tour will be the incredible Imperial Leisure! We're stoked to have these guys along, true headliners in their own right, who have been rocking festivals up and down the land with songs from their new album 'Death to the one-trick pony'. These guys are a seriously electric ska hip-hop mash-up that are gonna appeal to each and every member of the Boom army and we're tickled pink to have them aboard! Roll on November!
