In the spirit of the DIY scene, we won’t be announcing the running orders of the gigs until the night of the event. We want to encourage crowds to check out bands they may already love and bands they may be less familiar with. TNS believes in supporting gigs from the start to the finish and checking out new music wherever possible.

Here is an introduction to the bands on the TNS tour:

Faintest Idea are a band who featured on TNSrecords’ very first release, which was a 20 track compilation CD. They have since released three fantastic full length albums. This years ‘Increasing The Minimum Rage’ is probably their best to date. They bring together infectious two-tone ska and politically fuelled street punk and are guaranteed to have you dancing. They are truly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting ska bands around.

Roughneck Riot have built a reputation as one of Europes finest live acts after relentlessly touring for the past few years. With a banjo, a mandolin and an accordion alongside your traditional punk instruments, they have really nailed the folk-punk sound and they will blast out a set list which offers one infectious anthem after another.

Wonk Unit are one of the most exciting bands in punk rock right now. Fresh from touring with Slaves, they are beginning to fill venues across Europe and the USA at their own headline gigs. They offer a truly eclectic sound that borrows from indie, punk and ska and much, much more. Their 2016 ‘Mr Splashy’ album is getting rave reviews from the underground press and more mainstream publications. They also host ‘Wonk Fest’, which is one of the highlights of the punk rock calendar.

Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man play fast… very fast. Bassist, Andy co-runs TNS and like Faintest Idea they featured on the very first compilation and have released three critically acclaimed albums on the label. These including this years Alan Partridge referencing ‘Colossal Velocity’. You can expect human pyramids, walls of death and wheelbarrow walls of death. The possibilities are endless.

We hope you are as excited by this lineup as we are. We truly believe that these are four of the most exciting bands in the UK right now and we hope you can make it out to see some of these dates. We have many more awesome bands on the label and hope that this will be the start of many more TNS tours.

Tickets and info about local supports available from individual venues/promoters. We will post the individual events as soon as we have them.

TNS release bundles will be available at all gigs.

Wonk Unit and Slaves Release Joint Single

slaves-single-with-wonk

Those lovely chaps the Slaves have released a new single and invited us to join them on the B side, so hot off the new Mr Splashy album, “We are the England” has been released on vinyl.

Slaves are of course the darlings of NME at the moment, so it’s got a mention here.  Limited to 1500 copies on Black Vinyl and available in record shops!  There’s also a very silly Wonk Unit video for the single.. mostly featuring our great friends Pizza Tramp!  Come and see us on tour over November and December – we’ll bring copies of the single with us!

Slaves have released a video for new single ‘Take Control’, the title track from their new album set to be released on September 30.

This track will be released as a limited 7″ with “We Are The England” by Wonk Unit acting as the B Side.

The video is inspired by the old school vibes of VHS tapes and sees Isaac Holman and Laurie Vincent riding around on a tandem with a boombox.

New Website Coming…

Wonk need YOU

Well obviously the new Wonk Website is coming, cause you’re reading this!

So in a kinda surreal time-travel paradox, we can announce that THIS new website is being created by Web supremo, part time darts journalist, and obviously Wonk Unit fan, Krispy Brown.  We could go on singing his praises, but as it’s actually Krispy writing this, it would be a sad thing to do.

This new official site should be the new hub of all things Wonk, along with the well followed Facebook Page.

So bookmark, and bet good to each other, seeya soon, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
