In alliance with Terrible Records (run by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor) of the United States of America and Siberia Records (Midnight Juggernauts) in his home state, Kirin J Callinan returns with the brand new 7” single ‘W II W’ (Way to War).
Taken from his forthcoming full-length album, ‘W II W’ launches with an amazing gif-laden video by acclaimed director Kris Moyes. The video was premiered by Vice US this morning.
Kirin J Callinan, with full band in tow, will launch ‘W II W’ across the east coast of Australia this June. See below for full dates. Tickets to all shows are on sale now.
‘W II W’ is a synesthetic joyride to the frontline – voice, guitar and other machines painting the sonic image of war. All napalm, machine guns and loneliness, choppers and tracer bullets; you could be running for your life or gasping for your last breath. It’s perverted, raw and fun, and it’s the first single from Kirin J Callinan’s forthcoming debut solo album.
‘W II W’ and its accompanying B-side ‘Thighs’, the thematically related, lustful and deluded tale of a sexual predator, will be digitally released worldwide on 19 June 2012 and on 7″ vinyl on 31 July 2012. A limited amount of pre-release vinyl will be available at the launches and you can also pre-order the 7″ here.
