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.
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).
All tour dates are listed below.
