Brummie proto-punk bruisers BLACK BOMBERS are back with a brand new single and video, which they're premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

The first release by the expanded Bombers line-up featuring new guitarist Steve Crittall who joined at the start of 2020, 'Last Bite' is released as a limited edition 7" through Easy Action on 1 April.

"All Fools' Day 2022 seems the perfect time to release a track about false promises and the fantasy of returning to fading Empires," say the band. Recorded between lockdowns during the summer of 2020, work on the track was completed in Crittall's studio in Soho, London.

The single is backed with a cover of The Damned's 'You Take My Money' from their neglected second album Music For Pleasure.

Put together by bassist Darren Birch (Gunfire Dance, Brian James Gang, Walter Lure), singer/guitarist Alan Byron and drummer Dave Twist (The Prefects, TV Eye, The Hawks), Black Bombers released their self-titled debut album in 2016, followed by the mini-album Vol. 4 in 2019.

More recently, Twist, a recognised music historian and archivist, is responsible for the acclaimed anthology Un-Scene! Post Punk Birmingham 1978 - 1982, out this month, also through Easy Action.

Currently in the process of booking dates around the UK, Black Bombers and others play a Ukraine benefit show at The Hare & Hounds, Kings Heath on Sunday 27 March.
