Ace London punks WONK UNIT have unveiled a first video from their new album, and they’ve chosen to launch it exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘I Told You So’ is taken from Mr Splashy which is set for release on 23 September through TNS Records on yellow, white and black vinyl and CD. Pre-order here.

“Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? Well, you should if you are ignorant of the air, leanings and grandeur of Wonk Unit, London’s improbable heroes. Heroes of community, of politics and melody. Champions of Wonkfest, the ever growing London festival that is key to the punk rock calendar. Yes, punk rock. Individual, ironic, poignant and occasionally wistful, Wonk Unit deliver Mr Splashy in your ears and it resonates in a contemporary way, legitimizing the mantra of ‘21st century punks’. My mate Sean brought home the latest Descendents effort on vinyl recently and spun a few tunes. My reaction? ‘This sounds like Wonk Unit’. Case closed. Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? Honk If You Wonk.” Johnny Takeaway
