NEW TUNE FOR FREE! We're off on tour!! Punktastic Tour Diary!!!

Oi oi!

How quickly time flies! We're going to be up and out on the road again as of tomorrow for just over a month and we're fully rehearsed and raring to go with saxophonists in tow. To celebrate this most joyous of times, our very own Jim Boom's electronica alter-ego Midas has put together a wicked remix of 'Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!' featuring Barney dropping a whole brand-new verse. The track is absolutely free with no strings attached but we've enabled this as a 'fan set price' download so if you are nice enough to want to donate to the good ship Boom and help us keep doing what we do through the winter months, who are we to stop you? To download the track just visit HERE and grab it while it's hot! GO!

First of the tours is a killer package tour of Europe with Less Than Jake, Zebrahead and, on selected dates, our pals in Bomb The Music Industry! are going to be opening up! It's a supreme line-up and I know there are at least a few of you coming over from the UK for the Amsterdam date. Maybe it's time to have a look at some plane tickets if not?! We're being joined onstage by none other than Dave Matthews from Kid's Can't Fly on sax on all dates. This could be too good to miss...

Just so you guys don't miss out on any of the fun, we're going to be doing a tour diary with our friends over on Punktastic.com.  Check on there every couple of days for new diary entries and exclusive videos. I'm sure with such an awesome line-up there will be many shenanigans. I'll leave no stone unturned...

Over on the mainland we're going to be celebrating the release of Germany's 'Rude Awakening' on Fond Of Life records which is an awesome label who've released tons of good stuff with releases from UK bands such as our friends from Failsafe, Mike Scott, From Plan to Progress and more. We're stoked to be a part of the label!



Our UK tour proceeds literally the day that we get back from Europa. We're pleased to announce that the shows will be ably augmented by the saxophone skills of one Alex Bertein, a champion saxophonist who we met while he was playing in ska-core nutters Mr Jingle and who has often played for us while we've been over in France. It's our pleasure to bring him over to the UK for the first time! This, of course, means you're going to be hearing an old sax classic or two but we're also pleased to say we'll be playing two or three brand new tunes on the tour.

Reviews of our Rude Awakening compilation (which you can check out HERE) are dropping in as we speak. You can check out what Bananatown, Old Punks Never Die and Scootering magazine think of it by clicking their names! On the forthcoming tour, we're going to be doing an interview with the MediaEssentials.co.uk gang. You can head over to their Facebook and submit a custom question for us HERE so fire us that burning query you've always wanted the answer to.

Remember to head over and grab the remix before it grabs you. Whatever that means.

Until The Sunlight Comes!
