New Releases

Italian garage-punk tearaways Smalltown Tigers are back for the Chinese Year of the Tiger.

Smalltown Tigers have just released a video of their cover of Columbus OH action-rockers New Bomb Turks’ ‘Girl Can Help It’.

The superb Italian garage-punk band dropped their debut mini-album Five Things to worldwide acclaim in the Spring of 2020. As this was deep in the first lockdown, their accompanying UK tour was first postponed and, then sadly, cancelled. The girls from Rimini are now determined to make up for it.

They’ll be opening for The Damned on their reunion dates in the Autumn, as previously announced. 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.

‘Girl Can Help It’ was originally recorded for the album Defiled! A Heavy Medication Tribute To New Bomb Turks, released last year.

Tour 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.)

4 Nov – O2 Academy, Glasgow (w/ The Damned etc.)

5 Nov – O2 Academy, Birmingham (w/ the Damned etc.)
