Initially forming when Mickey auditioned for Dolly’s solo project many years ago, Tokyo Taboo have built quite a reputation for their spectacular, character-driven - and often shocking - vibrant live performances. Now, with their debut receiving acclaim from the likes of Radio X’s John Kennedy, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Clash and Punktastic, they’re ready to take on the world once again with the mind-blowing power of No Pleasure Only Pain. And, with a UK tour soon to be announced, plus more new music on the way next year, you’d better keep your eyes on Tokyo Taboo. We’re sure Dolly wouldn’t have it any other way.
Tokyo Taboo’s upcoming album was funded in part by a hugely successful Pledge Campaign. During day three in the studio the band had already reached their funding goal and their fans continue to pledge as momentum builds and the single release date draws closer. Recorded in California by Noah Shain (whose most recent production Badflower’s ‘Ghost’ is currently occupying Number 1 in the US rock chart), the album showcases how the band have really honed their sound since their debut, developing musical layers and refining production to create something utterly unique. Shain describes the new single as “… a swampy, sexy exploration of doing something you know is bad for you because, in the moment, it feels so good. It’s a gutbucket romp through obsession, lust and desire.”
