CULTURE ABUSE DROP “WAR TIME DUB” AHEAD OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
The Bay punks will kick off their headline tour this Thursday, June 6th.
After spending a majority of 2018 on the world’s stages alongside Nothing, Green Day, The Bronx, and more, Culture Abuse are conquering the open road yet again—this time, for their first-ever full headlining North American tour. On the heels of kickoff, Culture Abuse have dropped another new single, “War Time Dub,” alongside a music video by David Kelling and Tyler Bradberry.
Recorded live on tape at Balboa Recording Studios in Los Angeles, “War Time Dub” was a collaboration with Culture Abuse and Chris Owens of LORDS fame and Danny Nog, with the live dub mix by David Kelling. Kelling commented:
“CULTURE CITY is our true expression through art. CULTURE CITY is doing whatever we want with whoever we want. Music has no borders or limitations. The only restrictor is yourself if you overthink or believe the bullshit you are fed by those that have lost their imagination. Don’t be afraid to be yourself. DREAM ON.” He continues, “This is shaking off any assumptions or expectations of who or what you think we are and this is only the beginning.”
Dubbed the ‘Culture City Funky Rock Party,’ Culture Abuse’s forthcoming tour will be an indisputably star-studded affair. The Bay punks will be sharing stages with prolific punker Tony Molina, DARE, Young Guv (Ben Cook of Fucked Up & No Warning), Lil Ugly Mane, Poison Thorn (Shane Moran of Title Fight), and more.
Culture Abuse swarmed the scene in 2016 with their acclaimed debut album Peach, following up in 2018 with the release of Bay Dream (Epitaph). Last month, Culture Abuse released their charming new single “Goo” which was recorded and proceeded by David Kelling and Culture Abuse.
