Beijing’s Re-TROS prep new LP, touring (Burger Beach Bash, opening for Xiu Xiu)


Beijing post-punks Re-TROS have been making a racket since 2004, and are set to release their new album, Before The Applause, on September 22, via Modern Sky Records USA. The first single is the dark, rhythmic “8+2+8 II,” which falls somewhere between krautrock and gothy industrial. You can stream that and another recent track below.

Re-TROS will be touring North America this summer, and have two NYC appearances in July: Baby’s All Right on 7/20 with The Great Sunshine Buddha, and Simon Doom, and then Coney Island’s Burger Beach Bash on 7/22 with The Zeros, Nobunny, Habibi, Sunflower Bean, and more. Tickets for both those are on sale now.

The band will also be joining Xiu Xiu on their tour which hits Brooklyn’s Villain on September 23tickets are on sale June 23 at 10 AM.

UPDATE: The Xiu Xiu show at Villain got moved to Union Pool and Re-TROS are no longer playing. HOWEVER, Re-Tros now have their own NYC show at Berlin on September 28 with Brian Hill & Nohh Stars (tickets).
