V***ra Boys share new single ‘Punk Rock Loser’
FORTHCOMING ALBUM CAVE WORLD OUT JULY 8 VIA YEAR0001
|PRAISE FOR V***RA BOYS|
“Songs that match parody with precision”
“A true and ferocious highlight”
“One of Europe’s best live bands”
Stockholm post-punk band V***ra Boys (**=gia for spam) return this week with a full-on old western video for new single ‘Punk Rock Loser‘ from their recently announced album Cave World out July 8 via YEAR0001. LISTEN HERE + WATCH HERE.
The video, directed by SNASK features Murphy nonchalantly walking through the wild west amongst tattooed cowboys and barmaids insisting that he’s a “savage” and “really cool” in the most affectless, unconvincing slur he can manage. “I’m loose” he adds, a word the US-born vocalist has tattooed in Swedish on his forehead. The normally wild band is tamed into a bouncy pulse with only a few strands of frayed guitar squelching through the mix.
Having just announced a new album and coming off a completely sold-out U.S. Tour which included stand-out performances at Coachella, The V***ra Boys continue to establish themselves as the apex of modern punk. 2021’s Welfare Jazz, which earned rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, GQ, NME, Stereogum, and FADER, showed the band’s class in production and Murphy’s abilities as a writer, but they want more and Cave World is a testament to that.
The band comes back to the US for a Fall 2022 US co-headline tour with UK band Shame, kicking off on September 29 for two nights at Oakland’s New Parish and wrapping on Halloween in Dallas, the twenty-three date tour will make stops in Denver, Nashville, Brooklyn, New Orleans and so much more. The band will then head to the EU for an additional run of dates, making this their largest tour yet. Full dates and tickets available HERE.
