There will be no new band on 12/4. Nothing – nothing – could come close to the news that tonight it was announced that Tom Vek will be returning with a new album, with a 30 second clip premiered on Zane Lowe – ignore the means that this was delivered and let’s just bask in this. 6 years in the making, countless rumours of death, of him going bad, of him packing it all in, everything. Worry not about all that has gone before, nor the fact that the same New Zealander will be having the first play of a new track from forthcoming album – FORTHCOMING ALBUM – Leisure Seizure next week. My heart is racing too fast. Years of playing the same b-sides, scouring for news in the backwaters, writing incessant blogposts, setting his wikipedia entry as my homepage, we can write that off. I don’t know what to say. This is brilliant. I never want to die.
This is Fake DIY have posted the sample on their soundcloud page. Stick it on repeat:
Tom Vek – A Chore.
