Now they’re back with plans to release a debut album in early 2018 through Arts & Crafts (!) Not only that, but they’ve shared new track ‘Doghead’, a slice of spiky yet deeply menaching post-punk.
The band say of the track: “Doghead was inspired by a character in Nick Cave’s And the Ass Saw the Angel, using partial dialogue directly from the novel. Themes in the song include how lustful behaviours and jealously play into a desire for power”.
FRIGS have just embarked on a tour of Europe with Wolf Parade, and they’re set to be back in the UK later this week, with tickets on sale now. After their gig with the band in London on 22nd November, they’ll be playing a headline show at Ryan’s Bar in the capital.
