PROTOMARTYR SHARE ADULT SWIM SINGLE ‘BORN TO BE WINE’, ON TOUR NOW

PROTOMARTYR WILL COLLABORATE WITH THE POP GROUP FOR ROUGH TRADE 40

Protomartyr have shared a new song written for Adult Swim’s Summer Single Series called ‘Born To Be Wine’. Other artists tapped to participate in the series include Against Me!, Earl Sweatshirt, Run The Jewels, Flying Lotus, Jenny Hval, Vince Staples, and more. Singer Joe Casey had this to say about their contribution:

‘Born To Be Wine’ was written and recorded in two days in March of this year. It was recorded by Chris Koltay at his Hi Bias Studio in Detroit and features contributions from Zak Bratto and Jake Kmiecik-Percussion, John Olson and Wade Kergan-Sax, and Trevor Naud-Dulcimer. The title comes from mishearing a Frenchman talking about his favourite rock and roll songs, while the lyrical sentiment takes in louche, elder rockers confined to man caves and a list of fearsome things that were ruminated on during a particularly dire phone interview.

LISTEN TO ‘BORN TO BE WINE’

The band also announced new tour dates with friends Eagulls and the Gotobeds. See the dates below. One of these dates is particularly special, as it will pair Protomartyr with one of the most legendary and influential post-punk bands of all time, The Pop Group. They’ll be performing together as part of Rough Trade 40, a celebration commemorating the label’s 40 years of releasing some of the world’s most exciting and forward thinking music.
