Kingston post-hardcore band Tubelord have announced news of a brand new release and a change in line-up. Percussionist Jamie Field and bassist Tom Coulson-Smith join frontman Jo Prendergast and drummer David Catmur on the band'€™s new EP, entitled Tezcatlipôca due to be released August 16th on Hassle Records.

Apparently pronounced €œtehs-cah-tlee-poh’-cah”, the songs on the new EP all relate to the Aztec beliefs of time, and were written when the band were listening to Phil Collins’ “Hello, I Must Be Going” non-stop. The band are insisting that fans listen to the whole three tracks of the EP (1. Arbour; 2. Ratchet; 3. Bazel) in the right order, as each song has strong interlinks.

Tubelord will also be curating their own '€˜ROTA'€™ art exhibition and show at Notting Hill Arts Club – free entry – on Augist 7th, and the matinee show will also serve as the launch party for Tezcatlipôca
