Dog Trumpet release new single ‘Fucking Idiots’

Dog Trumpet

Check out their politically charged new single from their forthcoming album 'Shadowland' - out on November 4

Founding members of the iconic Australian band Mental as Anything, brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa (akak Chris O’Doherty) are Dog Trumpet – an eccentric and offbeat group known for their warm melodic drives and poetic, yet sometimes absurd, lyricism. Their latest single ‘Fucking Idiots’ is a heavily politicised take on the nature of human cruelty, questioning the self-destructive, violent and stupid landscape of our current socio-political climate. ‘Fucking Idiots’ is a single off their forthcoming album, Shadowland, which releases on November 4.
