KIRIN J CALLINAN
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 east coast tour this June. Performing with a full live band, Kirin J Callinan will launch the W II W 7” at Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on Thursday 21 June, Goodgod Small Club in Sydney on Friday 22 June, and The Tote in Melbourne on Thursday 28 June. Tickets to all shows are on-sale on Wednesday 16 May. '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. 'W II W' succeeds Kirin's critically acclaimed 7" EP She, described as a “slow burning desert love song, all tumbleweed and condemned, rusted petrol stations” (Mess+Noise); a handful of split cassette and flexi-disk releases with industrial minimal synth duo Forces; and Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders’ 2012 Australian Music Prize nominated and critically confused album Hurtsville.
