To call Total Control punk is to not tell the whole story. The Australian five-piece came into their own in 2008, after releasing a slew of 7-inches that canvassed genres from more electronic wave to droning garage punk. The band finally released their first full length, Henge Beat, in 2011, and in 2014, they dropped one of the best post punk albums of the year in the nihilist, enveloping Typical System.
The band will be hitting the road for a s short tour and will stop at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco with Flesh World, POW!, and an as of yet unnamed special guest (Thee Oh Sees, maybe? We wish.) late this summer. Tickets are on sale now.
Total Control, Special Guests TBA, Flesh World, POW!
