Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Share Brand New Single

Today, Australia's Psychedelic Porn Crumpets share their huge new single "Mundungus", our first taste of new music from the band since the release of their acclaimed new album And Now For The Whatchamacallit earlier this year.

Listen to "Mundungus" here

"Mundungus", an archaic term for foul-smelling tobacco (or, for eagle-eyed Harry Potter fans, the name of Order of the Phoenix member and conman, Mundungus Fletcher), is a confident and fleshed out offering from the band, who have truly taken 2019 by the horns. Receiving its worldwide premiere on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac last night, "Mundungus" is fiery and captures the spirit of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets in full technicolour glory.

About the track, frontman Jack says "Mundungus is the rare post tour recovery period where all our surrounding friends and family assume we're crippled with alcoholism, burdened with lives of social estrangement and are far too disillusioned to foresee our self destructive tendencies".

Following the rave reviews and sold out shows of their 27 date North American tour, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are set to kick off their UK/EU tour this month, after their performance at Desert Daze on Saturday, October 12. Psychedelic Porn Crumpets' third studio album And Now For The Whatchamacallit is out now via Marathon Artists and is a culmination of experiences lived on the road and influences stemming from the last few years of chaos for the band.

Hailing from the same Aussie homeland as psych-rock contemporaries Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and POND, the release of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets' And Now For The Whatchamacallit marks an exciting chapter for the band that sets them apart from the crowd. Recorded between Jack McEwan's bedroom and Tone City Studios in Perth, mixed by Michael Jelinek (Gunns) and mastered by John Davis (Gorillaz, The Killers), And Now For The Whatchamacallit is representative of the band's huge developed sound and even loftier ambitions.
