Butterfingers Return with New Single and Tour

Australia’s cult-classic hip-hop/crossover act, Butterfingers, have announced an extensive national tour set to kick off this March. It will see them hitting up all capitals and rural hot spots around the country with Sydney MC (and Big Village label chief) Rapaport in tow.

Known for their tongue-in-cheek humour and irreverent hits like ‘FIGJAM’ and ‘Yo Mama’, the band are also releasing their second single since coming off their ten-year hibernation from recording with their latest left of centre earworm, ‘Bullet To The Head’. It is the 2nd single to be lifted from a forthcoming album due for release later this year.

Drummer Damien Green is still recovering from a broken elbow sustained during a terrible skateboarding accident two days before their NYE extravaganza show in Darwin. The band will have replacement drummer Tony McCall, aka T-Bone, since he’s managed to reserve some free time between cracking skulls in the MMA ring and melting faces from behind the skins with Wolfmother, Resin Dogs, Jamiroquai and a list of ten million other bands too lengthy to mention.

About the single – 

‘Bullet to the Head’ is a blistering hot reaction to the stress of modern life due to the overstimulation and hyper-connectivity of social media, email and mobile ‘devices’ in general. The 2018 musical equivalent of the film ‘Falling Down’, ‘Bullet To The Head’ is an amalgamation of rap and rock that feels somehow fresh and new while still paying homage to core 90’s influences (and beyond) from each genre. Moving at pace this track is a distress signal that screams too much coffee and not enough time.‘

About the tour – 

“There are spots on this tour that we haven’t played for 7-10 years and considering how pumping our recent shows have been, and the kind of response we are getting from the new single, we’re just chomping at the bit to get out there and tear it up!”

– “Evil” Eddie (vocals)
