Good news for NYC fans of great Aussie band Total Control -- they've added a second show on their East Coast tour, which happens on May 22 at Mercury Lounge. That's the day before their 285 Kent show (5/23). No openers have been announced yet for Mercury Lounge but tickets go on AmEx presale on Wednesday (2/27) with the general on-sale happening on Friday (3/1). Updated tour dates are listed below.
As mentioned, the band (which features Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and most of UV Race) recently collected their hard-to-find 7" catalog onto on digital compilation and you can stream that below.
