POPTONE - A New Band By Members Of Bauhaus, Tones On Tail And Love & Rockets Announces Debut Album, Track Available For Streaming

Bauhaus, Tones On Tail and Love And Rockets – all critically acclaimed bands. Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins were founding members of all three. Now joined by Kevin's daughter Diva Dompé on bass, they have formed a new band called Poptone. The three-piece have announced the impending release of the debut Poptone album via Cleopatra Records. This double LP consists of 13 songs from their set, originally recorded for a recent Part Time Punks session on KXLU. The band will also soon be touring the West Coast (USA) Tour in May.
Poptone was propelled to life by an epiphany that woke Daniel Ash up in February 2017. In the early hours, loudly jolted awake by Motorhead's "Ace Of Spades", Ash had a light bulb moment..."I need to play live again".
Poptone have been delivering a blistering live show across America over the past year. This will continue in 2018 with eight dates in May already confirmed. With the band rehearsing previously numbers they've not yet played live, 2018 looks to be another great year with an eye to writing new material further down the road. The May tour sees the band come to California's Solana Beach, Pomona, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz, followed by Seattle, Portland and Vancouver.
Poptone are fulfilling a lifelong dream for much of their audience, most of whom would not have seen Tones On Tail play live during their brief existence. Of course, Bauhaus was resurrected in 1998 (after a 15-year absence) and again during 2005-06 and, save for occasional appearances in 2007 and 2008, Love And Rockets bowed out in 1999. For all three groups, but especially with respect to Tones On Tail, this is your chance to seize the day.
The Poptone album will be released via Cleopatra Records on 8th June. They are teasing now with the track "Go!" and you can give it a spin in the player below. Link
