Following their triumphant live return in 2013 after a thirteen year hiatus, China Drum are embarking on a 25th Anniversary UK tour with the opening night taking place at Newcastle’s Think Tank? on Friday 12th December.  Far from resting on their laurels, the band will also be celebrating with a new single, Water, released in late November through Too Pure Singles Club and available on good old fashioned vinyl as well as download. That not enough for you?  Well, how’s about a forthcoming split 7″ with Pulled Apart By Horses and DZ Deathrays in December too?  All in all, it’s a pretty good time to be a China Drum fan, with their legendary cover of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights recently making it to a whopping number 15 in the BBC’s best cover versions of all time poll.  And with recent writing and recording sessions going well, we can expect to hear even more from them in 2015.  But in the meantime, get yourself down the front at Think Tank? this December and mosh like it’s the mid-90’s all over again!  After all, it’s punk rock, son!
