You may be familiar with the genre riddled with epiphanies from Talibam!‘s deep catalog but brace yourself for a real, sure-fire surprise when we reveal that their forthcoming album Puff Up the Volume is their “No School Rap” debut. That’s right. They say “if you went to rap school, you wasted your money.” The single “Step Into The Marina” takes us to a new melange where synth pop mixes with hiphop word-play, heralding their new sound. ‘Puff up the Volume’ is the outcome of a recording session after drummer Kevin Shea's big toe on his bass drum foot was crushed during a gong accident forcing him to play bass drum with his left foot for the rest of a tour and the subsequent recording session.
