Tropical Fuck Storm Release New Album, Braindrops, on Aug. 23; Stream “Paradise”

Tropical Fuck Storm, the off-kilter, avant-psych Australian outfit, release their sophomore album, Braindrops, on Aug. 23 via Joyful Noise Recordings.

“I’ve invented fake news as a genre of music,” TFS singer/songwriter Gareth Liddiard states on the new album. Braindrops overflows with compelling sounds and visions that reflect the often dark and fractured reality of life on planet Earth as we hurtle toward environmental and social decay at a frighteningly rapid clip.

Liddiard and his TFS co-conspirators, bass player Fiona Kitschin (his Drones’ bandmate), guitar player Erica Hung (Harmony/Palm Springs) and drummer Lauren Hammel (High Tension) recorded the nine-song album in the Australian outback, at the outfit’s “Dodgy Brothers Studio” in regional Victoria. A preview of the nine-song collection is available via the newly released song “Paradise” (

Braindrops pre-orders are available via Joyful Noise Recordings’ webstore ( The band previously released the track “The Planet of Straw Men” ( as a limited edition 7-inch and accompanying digital single.
