Salad Boys share “No Taste Bomber” from new LP, expand tour, playing Elvis Guesthouse after Palisades (updated dates)

by Bill Pearis

Salad Boys

New Zealand’s Salad Boys have shared a second song from their terrific new album, Metalmania, which is out September 18 via Trouble in Mind. (Pre-orders are available in limited mixed-color vinyl.) These guys make the kind of fiercely strummed, jangly guitar pop that never really goes out of style (even if it’s never exactly in style, either). “No Taste Bomber” is a fine example of what they do, with the song spending half its five-minute length on the kind of one-chord jam the Feelies or The Meat Puppets might unleashed in 1985. Listen below.

It won’t be too long till Salad Boys’ North American tour starts, which has expanded a bit since our last post. In addition to the October 1 show at Palisades (no advance tickets yet), they’ll also play Elvis Guesthouse the next night (10/2, tickets). Updated tour dates are listed below.
