London alt-rock quartet THUMPERMONKEY have unveiled new single 'Tzizimime' and announced the release of new EP Electricity via Rockosmos on 13 October.
Premiered on Prog mag, check out 'Tzizimime' here: http://vevo.ly/yjCduZ
Electricity offers delicate flavours of genre mastery in THUMPERMONKEY’s songwriting, be it King Crimson’s meticulousness, flamboyant cinematics circa Scott Walker or a dominant presence on the drum kit and guitars that parallels Queens of the Stone Age. Vocalist Michael Woodman channels a certain ambience akin to what you would imagine if David Bowie met Cardiacs.
The EP is inspired by the story of Victorian MP and visionary Lord James Badger, who, under divine instruction almost two hundred years ago, set out to conquer nature and “restore” the civilisations of Mesopotamia with the new power of Electricity.
THUMPERMONKEY have also announced an EP release show at the Black Heart in Camden on 6 October, get tickets here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/406245
Electricity is the band’s 7th release and a full-length is expected in 2018.
