The world's best surf punk band is back! THE TURBO A.C.'s put in a short break, just to return with an upcoming Europe tour and the reissue of their album "Damnation Overdrive". The record, which had been sold out for quite some time now, will be re-released via Concrete Jungle Records in June 2016.
A brief throwback: Originally, "Damnation Overdrive" came out in 1996 on Blackout! Records (New York). And it really hit a nerve in Europe. Gearhead magazine called them „a younger hungrier SUPERSUCKERS“. Music journalist Markus Kavka drew similarities to SOCIAL DISTORTION in the renowned magazine Metal Hammer. But "Damnation Overdrive" really is more than just 'reminiscent of something else'. It's a brilliant approach to mix surf and punk and deliver it with a raw, energetic sound. It was fresh, it was new, and people were crazy about it. THE TURBO A.C.'s soon had built up a solid fan base all over the world. After their first release, there were six more studio albums and countless tours to come. In 2011, the band released their latest album "Kill Everyone" on Concrete Jungle Records. Now, they are busy working on their next record.
"Damnation Overdrive" is full of hits - which makes it even more difficult to only name a few tracks as its highlights. "Puff of Smoke", "Be Fast", "Live to Win", "Eat My Dust" are classics - and after 20 years they haven't lost any of their energetic charm and raw atmosphere. For the album's reissue, THE TURBO A.C.'s mastermind Kevin Cole (vocals / guitar) went over the songs again, remastered them and added two more bonus tracks to the record.
"20 Years in Damnation Overdrive" will be released as a limited Digipak on CD with an extra patch. The limited colored 12'' LP comes with a DIN A1 poster and a free mp3 download card. Make sure to save one of these physical copies before they are sold out!
This July, THE TURBO A.C.'s will tour in Europe again.
