South Coast punk legends PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES have signed to Arising Empire Records, a division of Nuclear Blast.
The first fruit of the relationship will be a new, ominously-titled, album That Shallot.
Considered by the band to be their "best album ever", most of the songs were written by band founders Peter Bywaters and Del Strangefish, with two by new bassist Nick Abnett. The album also features contributions from RANCID's Lars Frederiksen and THE PUKES, and Olga from THE TOY DOLLS was also involved.
