Big Scout 'Council Sport' Album Tour Announced

Big Scout 'Council Sport' Album Tour Announced

Chris Cudby / Monday 1st August, 2022 10:15AM

Barreling out of Blenheim / Waiharakeke, post-punk trio Big Scout have a fresh album in the can titled Council Sport, launching on 18th August via Aotearoa's Melted Ice Cream, part of a 2022 hot streak of releases from the imprint that includes superb records from Ben Woods and Violet French. What's a new album without a launch tour? No need to ponder that brain-teaser, as the team of Jim Tannock, Matthew Hellriegel, Gregg Slatter have assembled an all-killer six date trek across our fair nation, joined by guests King Ketchup, Joe Sampson and the Growing Health Concerns, Pretty Dumb, Griptape, Team Scary, the aforementioned Violet French and more. Live appearances from Big Scout are always a special occasion — get the full official scoop on their forthcoming twelve tune opus (putting it better than we ever could) over on their Bandcamp page HERE, where you can also preorder the record on limited edition vinyl LP, plus don't miss them at the following dates...

"... These guys are a well oiled machine and they wield their force with laser targeted precision — at once a weapon of mass seduction and the kind of ‘fuck you’ that’s usually followed by a knee to the nuts by a scorned lover. The influences are diverse in this coming together of three starkly different personalities, woven into an abrasive tapestry by practiced musicians with an intimate chemistry that’s says: ‘we’re brothers first and band mates second.’ The love shines through. These guys sure as fuck aren’t what you think you’re gonna to hear coming out of lil ol’ Boomtown but they’re coming for you nonetheless..."
