Due out in September on Smalltown Supersound, the album features guest appearances from members of Liquid Liquid.
Tussle are a live quartet that make angular, post-punk inspired dance tunes. They've been around for a decade or so, but took a few years off after their last album, Cream Cuts. Tempest comes four years after that LP, and was recorded with a different lineup: the band has a new drummer, and Optimo member JD Twitch recorded the album with them in Glasgow. And he's not the only interesting guest appearance: Dennis Young of Liquid Liquid, one of Tussle's most important progenitors, contributed overdubs from his studio in New Jersey (vocalist Sal P appears too, in sample form). You can hear a track from the album here on the label's SoundCloud.
