New Zealand’s bad boys of rock The Cavemen return this Fall with their “Burn Out For Love” 7″ due out October 5th via Dirty Water Records and the Brazil-based label Mandinga Records. Recorded this past March in São Paulo with Luis Tissot at Caffeine Sound Studio, the 2-track single returns punk to its’ booziest and rowdy roots.
Amphetamine-fueled rhythms and scorching guitar, coupled with Paul Caveman’s drunk and disorderly vocal tirades, have these cuts unleashing a barely containable sonic mayhem. And, as though that’s not enough, The Cavemen have a brand new video for the 7″‘s title track, “Burn Out For Love.” Featuring a cut and paste job on the “classic” Mexican punksploitation film Intrépidos Punks, the video is a pyrotechnic orgy of car crashes, boobs, and gratuitous biker violence. Coming from this band of debauched Kiwis, we’d expect nothing less!
The Cavemen are back on the road this month with part two of their Nuke Europe tour. If you’d like to catch up with the boys as they spread their infectious brand of punk rock pestilence, you can check out all the upcoming dates below.

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 188.8.131.52's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
