In alliance with Terrible Records (run by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor) and Siberia Records (Midnight Juggernauts), Kirin J Callinan returns with the brand new 7” single, W II W (Way to War). A synesthetic joyride to the frontline, W II W is the 1st single from Kirin's forthcoming debut solo album and launches with an amazing, gif-laden video clip from acclaimed film director Kris Moyes. All napalm, machine guns and loneliness, choppers and tracer bullets, W II W (and its accompanying b-side, Thighs) will be digitally released worldwide on 19 June and on 7" vinyl on 31 July. Performing with a full live band, Kirin J Callinan will tour the east coast, playing the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on Thursday 21 June, Goodgod Small Club in Sydney on Friday 22 June, and The Tote in Melbourne on Thursday 28 June. W II W succeeds Kirin's critically acclaimed EP She, described as a “slow burning desert love song, all tumbleweed and condemned, rusted petrol stations” (Mess+Noise); a handful of split cassette and flexi-disk releases with industrial minimal synth duo Forces; and Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders’ 2012 Australian Music Prize nominated and critically confused album Hurtsville.
