Fast-rising garage-punks Smalltown Tigers have announced the release of their debut single, along with their first ever UK dates. The band, from the east coast Italian city of Rimini, came together last year, cutting their teeth on the local squat scene before clinching the support slot on a tour with visiting New York outfit Baby Shakes. Working with noted blues-punk musician Stiv Cantarelli, the girls laid down eight original songs, later having the tracks mastered for release by the legendary Jim Diamond. Signing to one of Europe’s leading garage-punk labels Area Pirata Records, the trio are set to release their debut mini-album in the New Year, it will be preceded, on Friday 27th September, by the digital single “Just Friends“. Smalltown Tigers will hit the UK in October for their first ever overseas dates, playing four gigs in three days, including an appearance at female punk collective Loud Women‘s 4th Birthday Party at the Hope & Anchor in Islington.
