The Italo-punk invasion continues with the return of SMALLTOWN TIGERS, who are premiering their new video exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

'Five Things' is the title track from the Rimini trio's debut mini-album which is due out through Area Pirata on 24 April and also features their previous single 'Just Friends'.

The video was shot by up'n'coming video-maker Amelia Wornell while the band were in London for their first ever UK shows last autumn.

Five Things was produced by garage-punk overlord Stiv Cantarelli and mastered by legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond (Sonics, White Stripes, Dirtbombs).

Smalltown Tigers formed in 2018 and made early headway on dates with Seattle punks Steal Shit Do Drugs and a nationwide tour with Baby Shakes. Their debut UK dates last October found them sharing stages with Hagar The Womb, The Speedways and The Menstrual Cramps, while the single 'Just Friends' earned them substantial radio plays from the likes of The Undertones' Mickey Bradley on BBC Ulster. A second wave of dates was scheduled for May but the Coronavirus put paid to that. They promise to be back in the autumn.


Five Things is available to pre-order via the Area Pirata website or digitally via Bandcamp, as well as on Spotify and various other platforms.
