Tunic Announce “Boss” EP, Out July 21st

Share “Eye Contact” Video via Impose Magazine

On Tour Now with More Dates Added for the Summer

Impose Magazine are pleased to introduce you to Tunic, one of Canada’s best new punk bands. The Winnipeg trio are set to release their latest EP, Boss, on July 21st, a corrosive and volatile record that takes the best moments of Metz and The Jesus Lizard and works them into their own artistic brilliance. Loud, aggressive, and often punishing, Tunic thrive on chaos, feedback, and manic bursts of slurred shouting. Lead single “Eye Contact” is a welcome intro, a big grooving blast of gloriously disgusting noise punk energy. The slow motion video is both captivating, mundane, and a bit gross, a nod to the band’s deviant charm. It’s dark and unrelenting but the rhythm section’s hypnotic boogie is impossible to resist.

Speaking about the band, Impose shared, “the Winnipeg-based trio crafts wildly energetic, unhinged aural landscapes that lock in on tight, hypnotic grooves that ride a certain tension before being shredded apart at the seams” before elaborating on “Eye Contact” noting “Accompanied by a slow motion, single shot video, “Eye Contact” establishes a propulsive rhythmic bedrock that draws you in and allows you to lose yourself in the churning black sea of guitar squalls and noise.”
