Australia's Goons Of Doom Announce US Dates, Post MP3/Video

Australia's Goons of Doom will release their second LP, "I Hate My Hair and Want To Die," in the US on October 20, 2009, via Volcom Entertainment. In anticipation of the album's release, the band has posted a free MP3 of their song "Beer Money" as well as a corresponding home video. In mid-September Goons of Doom will embark on a short Southern California tour), it will be their first time back in the US in three years.

"I Hate My Hair and Want To Die" is - as described by the band themselves - songs and sounds of pirates and adventures and romance on the clipper, immortalized for the hip set, the lonely loser, the sentimental soul and gutter trash fucks alike and of course for future generations to dissect and examine and analyze. In truth, "I Hate My Hair and Want To Die," is garage rock in the original sense with elements of fire and brimstone, softened bellies and a (really) tweaked surf folk.

A mixed-genre band with a jagged sense of humor, Australia's Goons of Doom are four lifelong surf buddies from the suburb of Narrabeen, led by legendary free surfer, Ozzie Wright. On drums is Cowboy, Killer Whale plays the keys and lead guitar, Vaughan Dead owns rhythm and vocals, and Wright plays bass and sings.
