Helsinki rockers Plastic Tears have been busy. The band just guested on partners in crime Paradise Alley's (UK) 'Class of '92' single and last weekend Plastic Tears played a show in Stockholm with swedish allies Trench Dogs. A European tour with Latvian band Bloody Heels starts the 1st of October and fourth album recordings are well underway. A little sneak peak from the forthcoming album can be heard the 27th of September when new single ‘Look Of Lies’ is released. A video accompanying the song is released after the tour. The single b-sides fast paced punk rocker ‘Communication’ is a track that won't be on the album.
The band's last album Angels With Attitude, released in June 2018, received a lot of positive attention in the bands native Finland as well as internationally, and Plastic Tears has been in a very active and productive mood lately.
‘Look of Lies’ represents Plastic Tears poppier side. The lyrics romantic decadence combined with the Irish folk influenced melody will bring either a smile on your face or wet your eyes with tears. The ‘b-sides' Communication again is a straight forward, fast and fun song telling a tale of communication, or rather the lack of it, from Alexander Graham Bell's times to present day.
