Australia’s Tropical Fuck Storm release their new 7″ single, “The Island of Straw Men,” this week and the b-side is a cover of Missy Elliot’s 2005 song “Can’t Stop.” Missy’s original was already pretty gonzo, but TFS manage to up the mayhem just a little. Listen to that and the single’s a-side below.

Tropical Fuck Storm have also just announced a North American tour which kicks off in Los Angeles at Bootleg Theater on August 28 and wraps up in Brooklyn at Elsewhere Hall on September 20, hitting most major U.S. and Canadian cities in between. Tickets for the Elsewhere show go on sale Friday, May 3 at 10 AM.

TFS’s last NYC show was at Elsewhere’s smaller Zone One room and they were fantastic — definitely catch them on this tour if you can. All dates are listed below.
