Published Jun 13, 2013The New Bomb Turks haven't issued an LP since 2002's The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still, and frankly, we're not holding our breath for a new full-length anytime soon. That said, the Ohio garage-punk group are ready to toast their 1993 debut !!Destroy-Oh-Boy!! with a deluxe vinyl reissue, which Crypt Records sets into stores July 23.
While it doesn't appear to feature any additional material, the high-octane outing will be fitted with a "super deluxe" gatefold cover and come packaged with liner notes from John Petkovic (Death of Samantha, Cobra Verde) and a number of musicians/fans.
Also being released through Crypt on July 23 is a new demos 10-inch from the New Bomb Turks dubbed Tapeworm Blues. The "crude, rude, and loud" EP was recorded in a Columbus, OH basement four months prior to !!Destroy-Oh-Boy!! and features four early takes on songs from that LP. It also includes two previously unreleased songs ("Tapeworm Blues" and "Drug Chicks").
To celebrate, the band play a hometown show June 29 at the Ace of Cups and will also hit up Europe for a few dates in the summer. You can see the schedule down below.
6/29 Columbus, OH - Ace of Cups
7/4 Oslo, Norway - John Dee
7/5 Stockholm, Sweden - Debaser
