New York weirdoes channel Phoenix to avenge van burn

The Warp-signed act will appear at Dingwalls on June 1st. A single, ‘First Communion’, will arrive to coincide with the date having had its original release postponed when the equipment burnt.

A TV On The Radio remix will appear on the single’s b-side.
