Now Hear This: Milkie Way on the best new trap-metal, electro-punk and hyperpop
WARGASM's Milkie Way brings you the new bands you need to check out now, including Death Tour, Cassyette and Tokky Horror…
Before they “disappear to record our album”, Tokky Horror are releasing a five-song EP in May…
Tokky Horror have announced details of a new EP entitled KAPPACORE.
The punk gang will be dropping the five-track release on May 12 via Venn Records, teasing that it’s “the last thing we’ll put out before disappearing to record our album”.
“It’s road tested, high energy material from the first era of Tokky Horror,” they explain. “We’ve wanted to meld breakbeats with visceral guitars as we usually do, but expanded our range of sampling further and pushed our weirdness at times, there’s less out-and-out riffs and more times where our love of Orbital and Aphex Twin shines through. It’s still a record for the punks, just not purists.”
To coincide with the announcement, Tokky Horror have released a new video for their single TOILET, which is “a heartbreak song about falling out of love with a scene. I grew up feeling like a punk scene, or a DIY scene, or an activist scene would be this perfect space of inclusivity. Somewhere where we’ll all be welcome and motivated to actively bring around the change we talk about. That perspective is probably a little naive, and with time we’ve grown to see we should be creating new scenes and new spaces.
“Inspired by the energy those original movements but being the changes we feel they need. I always felt more at home in a punk club than a ‘gay bar’, that doesn’t mean those spaces are ‘wrong’ it just means there is a sub-culture of people who don’t have a space. So here with Tokky, we want to create one.”
