TSUNAMI BOMB: STILL STANDING 7" AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER
With their new 7â€ â€œStill Standingâ€, Tsunami Bomb has returned with their unique sound of keyboard driven bombastic punk rock with a dark edge and soaring vocals that gives an incredible fresh spin on some classic tracks.
Following up their emphatic return on the 2019 LP â€œThe Spine That Bindsâ€,Â Tsunami BombÂ wanted to revisit two of their classic songs as a gift for their street team,Â The Bomb Squad.Â Â The Irish jig drivenÂ â€œIrish Boysâ€Â is a live show favorite, but only previously available on a bedroom made 4 track recording from 1999. Keyboardist and co-vocalistÂ Oobliette SparksÂ takes lead on this track, firing lines back and forth with vocalistÂ Kate Jacobi, while guitaristÂ Andy PohlÂ showcases his lead guitar skills as the song screams through itâ€™s bittersweet tale of both shoes and evening plans drunkenly destroyed. AnotherÂ Tsunami BombÂ beloved classic gets a revisit withÂ â€œEl Diabloâ€, a song that was co-written byÂ OoblietteÂ who had sadly left the band by the time it was originally recorded. Now in its intended form, the keyboards return with a vengeance making you wonder how they could have ever not been present. Meanwhile the bandâ€™s tight rhythm section, drummerÂ Gabe LindemanÂ and bassistÂ Dominic Davi, explosively charge through the track at a breakneck pace.Â Â However, itâ€™sÂ JacobiÂ who takes center stage, with her high-flying vocals making the song and its message definitively and unquestionably hers.

Thatâ€™s just side A! Side B has two tracks exclusive to the vinyl, from a bootleg recording of the band in New York in 2018! If you have never seen Tsunami Bomb live, the shows are notorious for being packed, sweaty sing-alongs, and that is very much on display here. On two of their most popular songs of all time, â€œTake The Reinsâ€ and â€œLemonadeâ€ the band is almost drowned out by the East Coast crowd who screams every word back at them.
While the â€œStill Standingâ€ 7â€ was supposed to be just for their street team, Jello Biafra caught wind of it and insisted it be released on Alternative Tentacles, allowing the world to hear this new classic from Tsunami Bomb. A good thing he did, because this EP proves once again that not only is Tsunami Bomb â€œStill Standingâ€, they are better than ever.
The 7â€³ pre-order bundle includes exclusive Still Standing T-shirt that will not be available after pre-order ends. Only available for a limited time in this pre-order bundle.
