We’re dropping Jokers Of The Scene’s latest single “Revolting Joks” on May 25th as well. Dust La Rock really went all out on the cover art as well (more Dust La JOTS surprises coming this summer…) and the single comes backed by one freakout of a remix courtesy of Boy 8-Bit. Look for it at the end of the month, and preview the tune’s hypnotic piano riff on our European Vacation Tour wrap-up video.
Hit The Fader blog for Jokers Of The Scene’s sprawling remix of Boy 8-Bit’s already-sprawling “Wolfen.” Get set for JOTS forthcoming Fool’s Gold single, where Mr 8-Bit returns the favor! And check him on a North American tour with Fake Blood, kicking off this Tuesday with our Calgary homies at Hi-Fi. Full dates after the jump. Read More
