Dum Dum Girls have an EP coming out called End of Daze, and they're touring, and they like cherry-banana-fruit-punch-flavored candy

Grape Dum Dums taste like cough syrup. Cream Soda Dum Dums taste like sunscreen. Tangerine Dum Dums taste like Orange Dum Dums. Mystery Dum Dums aren’t real flavors. They’re combinations, like cherry root beer or blue raspberry watermelon or sour apple mango.

Dum Dum Girls have absolutely nothing to do with Dum Dum lollipops. They got their name from a Vaselines album called Dum Dum and an Iggy Pop song called “Dum Dum Boys.” Right after Dum Dum Girls recorded Only in Dreams (TMT Review), vocalist/guitarist Dee Dee Gundred wrote “Mine Tonight” and “I Got Nothing,” then stashed them away for a project a bit more atmospheric than the jangly 2011 release. Both tracks ended up on End of Daze, the band’s forthcoming EP, along with three other tracks, including a cover of Strawberry Switchblade’s “Trees and Flowers.” End of Daze will see a September 25 release via Sub Pop, and the Dum Dum Girls have a string of shows lined up to support the record. They’ve got at acoustic version of “Mine Tonight” that they recorded for Rhapsody.com, and you can check it out right here:
