Grecco Romank Announce 'Wet Exit' Album Release Tour + Unveil Single 'Celestial Poison'

Having wowed the crowd with their sledgehammer slinging moves at Welcome To Nowhere festival, Tāmaki Makaurau dance deviants Grecco Romank are embarking on a full blown nationwide tour, celebrating the imminent release of their forthcoming second studio album Wet Exit. Sounding alternately restrained and totally uninhibited as they prowl around producer Damian Golfinopoulos' scorched industrial techno / EBM beat-scapes, operatic vocalist Billie Fee and growling sprechgesang guru Mikey Sperring espouse the alluring yet dubious merits of 'Celestial Poison' on the trio's lead single from the new long player — also featuring avant sax master Jeff Henderson and Ron Gallipoli.

I've said it before and I'll say it here clearer: Grecco Romank's Fee and Sperring are one of the most spine-tingling local vocal pairings since Fiona McDonald and Chris Matthews of the Headless Chickens. Wet Exit launches digitally and on vinyl LP on March 23 via Moral Support, get in your preorders HERE and don't dare miss the electrifying trio bringing the party at the following dates...

"When we write lyrics or name tracks our approach is to find phrases and ideas that are often quite abstract, then, slowly a theme starts to emerge through the fog. For Celestial Poison we realised that a lot of the lyrics we were incorporating seemed to speak to ideas of misinformation, pseudo-science and magical thinking. We often try to play with our lyrics by taking on different roles and perspectives, often ones that are contrary to our own views or moral position.

... [Celestial Poison] it’s the earworm of our album. It's our most dramatic and catchy track on a varied and wild record. Hopefully it’s the anthem that will be New Zealand’s official entry into Eurovision 2023."

Press release:

Billie Fee (she/her), Mikey Sperring (he/him - Drab Doo Riffs, Bib Kids) and Damian Golfinopoulos (he/him, Stress Cadet) are the members of Grecco Romank, a Tāmaki Makaurau based trio who make electronic music perfectly suited for a European Dungeon Rave.

Since 2020 the band have been releasing luxuriously bogan techno tracks inspired by microgenres like Industrial and Eurodance. Their debut album Red Tower was a critical success in Aotearoa’s underground circles and was accompanied by a perfume entitled Leathery Coward.

Today Grecco Romank announce their new album Wet Exit (available digitally and on Vinyl LP on March 23 via Moral Support), a coinciding tour throughout Aotearoa, and share the new single Celestial Poison.
