(Freeman) Krum Bums are hitting the road for a North American tour with Toxic Holocaust.
Scheduled to kick off July 29th in Canoga Park, CA the tour will tear across North America winding up back in Los Angeles, CA on September 10th at The Blvd.
Frontman Dave Tejas commented on the upcoming tour: "Our tour with Toxic Holocaust is something to be feared! Krum Bums and Toxic Holocaust, friends for years, have now combined forces to piss off this conservative world! Who gives a f**k? We don't. We look forward to our cross-over with punk and metal with Toxic Holocaust. No one stands a chance. This is our life and we will destroy yours."
"Cut the Noose" will be released August 23rd on People Like You Records and features thirteen killer KRUM BUMS tracks which showcase the diversity of the band ranging from the pure punk snarl of "Action City" to the thrash-like "Starving Wolves", the latter which is a particularly personal track on the album. "At the time we wrote it, it seemed as though there were so many obstacles in our path, yet there was nothing that was going to stop us. Every day was a war we had to win," comments guitarist Trae Martinez.
Produced by Jason Buntz (Iron Age, Lower Class Brats, World Burns to Death), "Cut the Noose", harnesses the raw, untamed energy of KRUM BUMS, with Buntz functioning as the key ingredient around which the songs coalesced. KRUM BUMS have taken all of their hardship and pain and thrown it unflinchingly into "Cut the Noose". Always a live force to be reckoned with, "Cut the Noose" finds the band refining their sound, defying expectations and redefining what punk rock is all about.
