Tree-loving UK art-punks Snapped Ankles are back with a brand new single, "Barbeque in Brazil," that follows hot on the heels of last year's terrific Forest of Your Problems. Set to a hyperactive, motorik beat this is another excellent sonic nut cluster of social criticism by way of a post-punk dancefloor filler. Or as the band put it, "This is a song sung from the nemophilic corner of our woods, railing against instaconsumerism and the globally connected luxury travel industry that surrounds it. Let’s all meet at the last ever grill!”

We've got the premiere of the "Barbeque in Brazil" video which mixes footage of Snapped Ankles' frenzy-inducing live show with coals-eye views of an actual barbeque. It's hot stuff and you can watch below.

Snapped Ankles will soon be on their first-ever US tour, including Texas BBQ capital Austin for SXSW, and a BrooklynVegan-presented NYC show at Baby's All Right on March 9.  As someone who has witnessed the mania of their live show firsthand, I'll say if they're playing anywhere near you, go see them. All dates are listed below.

Joining Snapped Ankles on their Stateside trek will be Toronto band Gloin who make driving, dark post-punk. Check out their 2019 Soft Monster EP below.
