Famed post-punk rock act Theatre of Hate, fronted by Brighton resident Kirk Brandon, releases its first new material in over 30 years later this week.

Original members Kirk Brandon, Stan Stammers and John Lennard will be joined by current Spear Of Destiny band member Adrian Portas (New Model Army), Danny and Chris Bell (Hugh Cornwall) on a UK tour from late October.

The album ‘Kinshi’ is being crowd funded and offers a wide range of incentives to those who donate to the project and preorder the album which will be available on several formats including vinyl.

Music magazine Vive Le Rock awarded the new album 9 out of 10, citing the music’s ‘intensity and sense of purpose’ and ‘that it’s so good to have them back’.

The tour will visit various UK cities from late October; ticket information can be found here http://www.kirkbrandon.com/shows
