Black Tusk Stream New Song, Announce New Live Dates

  • Axl Rosenberg

Black Tusk, a band as mighty and dark as… well… a black tusk… have announced that they’ll release their next album, T.C.B.T., on August 17. The title apparently stands for Taking Care of Black Tusk, but I personally prefer to pretend it’s short for The Country’s Best Tushies.

ANYWAY, you can jam the first single, “Burn the Stars,” below. It’s a solid mix of snotty rawk and obnoxious grind, like Motörhead might have sounded if someone tried to take Lemmy’s drugs and alcohol away. As a bonus, it provides you with the opportunity to ponder the question of how one would burn a star, since stars are already burning.

But wait! There’s more! The group has also announced a whole batcha live dates with Whores and/or White Nails. If they’re not calling it ‘The Black and White Whores Tour,’ they’re really wasting an opportunity.
