Tropic of Cancer release new LP on Blackest Ever Black, ready their bat-driven carriage for European tour

Tropic of Cancer are the soundtrack to two synthpunk ice cubes falling in love in Nick Cave’s West Berlin refrigerator in 1987. Los Angeles-based Camella Lobo’s dark electronic project debuted in 2009 with the 10-inch single “The Dull Age” b/w “Victims” on the Downwards label. Since then, Tropic of Cancer have released 12-inches with cult labels Mannequin, Sleeperhold Publications, and a live split with HTRK on Ghostly International. Now they’re back with the band’s first-ever studio full-length, Restless Idylls, which drops September 23 via Blackest Ever Black.

Idylls is Tropic of Cancer’s return to the Blackest label, after the release of three-song EP The Sorrow of Two Blooms a while back. The new album will be available on LP, CD, and digital download. And to put the proverbial cherry on top of yer goth sundae, Blackest Ever Black is re-pressing The Sorrow of Two Blooms in August, plus a one-sided, limited edition 7-inch of album single “More Alone.” The band will tour Europe this fall, with Dva Damas as support on most dates. Tour wraps up at the Blackest Ever Black showcase in London, and the Unsound Festival in Krakow.
