Tropical Fuck Storm North American Tour 2019 poster
Tropical Fuck Storm, the Australian outfit Slate described as “the Mekons under assault by both Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band and a sentient PlayStation”, share a cover of Missy Elliott’s “Can’t Stop”, as the band announce a North American Summer tour, kicking off on Aug. 28 in Los Angeles.

Listen to “Can’t Stop” below.

“We’ve recorded an excellent version of "Can’t Stop" to cash in on the Sex Addiction Epidemic happening right now in all of our weakest Spotify markets”, coyly said the band, featuring The Drones’ Fiona Kitschin and Gareth Liddiard with drummer Lauren Hammel (High Tension) and guitarist/keyboardist Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Harmony).

The song is available both digitally and as a 7-inch single, here, from Joyful Noise Recordings, with the new track, “The Planet of Straw Men”, as the release’s a-side.
