Well, here they come again Europe! Last year, The Cavemen dropped one of the fiercest and most delightfully pummeling rock n' roll long players of recent memory with the appropriately-titled Nuke Earth. If these New Zealand neanderthals weren't already recognized as the planet's premier slingers of savage rock n' roll, Nuke Earth certainly settled the matter emphatically.
Infamous and unapologetic, these London based, ex-pat Auckland rockers have fast become the undisputed road kings of Europe. With their signature balls-to-the-wall, no-frills approach full of chugging power chords, distorted guitar rhythms, aggressive basslines, punchy drums, rambunctious screaming vocals, and Motorhead-like guitar solos, this brand of high-energy rock 'n' roll has made them one of the most commanding live acts on the planet right now.
This month the band will embark on an 11 day rock 'n' roll road rager of France and Spain behind two new 7" singles released in the last six months. " Burn Out For Love" and "Lowlife" were both recorded amidst the band's raid of Brazil a year ago, and it captures this road-tested crew at their peak ferocity.
Indeed, THE CAVEMEN over the last couple of years have pushed the limits of rock 'n' roll touring. You better catch 'em in the flesh before the reaper does!

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 18.104.22.168'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.
