Osaka Punch Drop New Track, Announce Tour Dates
Osaka Punch have given us a double dose of genre-twisting rock, dropping a mind-bending track AND announcing tour dates. With big things happening (they're playing at Bigsound and were chosen as the main support for The Butterfly Effect's tour in 2018) these boys look ready to dominate.
Frontman Jack Muzak mused about the song - "I wrote the lyrics to this song while on a 6 hour transit in Manila. I wanted to go somewhere peaceful to listen to the track and knuckle down so I went to a hotel close to the airport. I should've sensed something was awry when the guy at reception asked how many hours I needed the room. "Just 6 hours" I replied, and he looked impressed. When I got to my room it was really nice, and looked massive. This was of course an optical illusion, as the entire ceiling was covered in mirrors, and I realised I was in a sex motel. Not to be outdone by the moans and groans coming from the adjacent rooms, I started singing out loud, as I felt the sexual funk creep up inside me. After about half an hour I decided to eat the mint that'd been left on my pillow, only to realise it was, in fact, a condom thoughtfully left for me by the concierge. These are the lyrics that fell out of me that day."
Their tour in October and November hits Melbourne, Adelaide, Newcastle, Wollongong, Sydney, Brisbane, Maroochydore, Bunbury, Margaret River and Perth in October and November 2017. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday 8th September at beardfoot.com.au/osaka-punch. New Single "How We Operate" will be available from Friday September 8 online for purchase and streaming.
