The Oozes will hit the road next week for a massive run of dates including gigs in Manchester and Liverpool.

The four piece band will headline at Manchester’s Deaf Institute and Liverpool’s The Lobby.  The Manchester and Liverpool gigs are two of 42 dates they will play across the UK and Ireland.

The Oozes Eyesore Tour follows the recent release of their latest track DBSAC.  The track marks a two and a half minute burst of punk rock energy, raw, unapologetic and uncensored.  Frank Turner produced the track.

In Interview: Sophie Powers on new EP Red In Revenge

Speaking about DBSAC the Oozes said, “DBSAC is a track for calling out, patronising and shaming abusers. Its explicit nature is a real mirroring of the thoughts and experiences of so many. In a culture where speaking openly and honestly about rape and abuse is considered taboo and often silenced; the song does the opposite, leaving no room for questioning. It’s blunt, to the point and shows the power in reclaiming and repurposing that aggression.  Produced by Frank Turner, the process of bringing this song to life was cathartic, making sure to let out all rage and feed the track the most angry, confrontational energy possible.  It’s also great practice in Toms ability to swear, and Frank Turner’s ability with a bleep button – you nasty bleep slimey bleep I’m just gonna be blunt if you want someone to suck your bleep then don’t be such a bleep.  DBSAC is an opportunity for survivors to express their anger unapologetically and without shame.”
