Joanna Gruesome are presumably working on their second album. While we wait for news on that, the scrappy Welsh popsters will have one side of a split 12" with another UK band, Trust Fund, that will be out September 22 via Happy Happy Birthday to Me. Each band get three songs, and you can stream JG's very catchy "Jerome (Liar)" below. No tracks have been made available from Trust Fund's side, but you can stream the Briston, UK band's 2013 Don't Let Them Begin EP below. Only 500 copies of this are being pressed, order yours.

As you may know, Joanna Gruesome will be touring this summer, playing two NYC shows: August 26 at Shea Stadium with an impressive lineup of Perfect Pussy, Potty Mouth and the Joan of Arc-related The Love of Everything (tickets), and then the free Seaport Music Festival show on August 29 with Big Ups.

All dates are listed, with streams and a flyer for the Shea Stadium show, below...
