Australia’s Cuntz have a new album & video, going on first US tour (2 NYC shows this week)

by Erick Hughes


You’d have to be a complete and total dodo to be unaware that Australia has been pumping out the finest in rock n’ roll mayhem since, well, before you were born probably. Good thing for you, they’re still at it, and going stronger than ever. You’ve got yer sensitive lads in groups like Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Royal Headache and you’ve got yer dwellers in squalor like Circle Pit and Slug Guts. And now, you’ve got the best of both worlds in Oz’s newest and bestest combo — Cuntz. The four mates in Cuntz are sensitive men who enjoy diving into the muck, rolling around in it, and then emerging with mischievous grins on their faces. And they are coming for you, America. With a brand new album (second LP this year!), Solid Mates, in tow, Cuntz are poised to take this nation by storm, capturing its heart and defiling its offspring.

The tour (their first in the US) kicks off in NYC on Thursday (9/12) at Death by Audio with Brooklyn goths Pop. 1280, Black Black Black, and Cyanide Tooth (ex-Golden Error). Then they play another Brooklyn show on Friday (9/13) at The Flat (308 Hooper St) with Degreaser and Yo! Bum Rush the Show. All tour dates, including Goner Fest, are listed below.

Cuntz’s new LP, Solid Mates, is out this week and the video for its track “Never Felt Better,” an addictive ode to childhood that recalls the best of fellow countrymen Total Control and Primitive Calculators, is making its premiere in this post. Check it out, along with a streams of two other album tracks of the whole LP and the list of all dates, below.
