Teen rapscallions Lunatics On Pogosticks announce the release of a new EP, ‘Slug Cat and Snail Dog’ via themusicconnection label / MGM on Friday 11th July 2014. In support of the release, the grunge trio will head out on a tour of the East Coast this September.
After two years, two EP’s, a smattering of singles and a handful of house parties the band took out the 2013 Unearthed High Competition with their stomping single ‘Picasso’s Saddest Love’, hand picked by Triple j (over 900 other Aussie mites).
As competition winners, the band professionally recorded a single in the ABC studios. The result was ‘Blood Clot’; a power-pop tune, immediately catchy with a fierce-but-polished sound, that captured the band’s garage-scuzz style perfectly.
Current single ‘Less Than Sober’ was added to full rotation on Triple J in April, following performances on Falls Festival and Live It Up Festival. Lunatics On Pogosticks have supported British India, Dune Rats, Grinspoon and New Navy, as well as headlining at venues along the east coast, as attention to the band grows.
