TUNIC DROP VISCERAL JAW-CLENCHING ASSAULT “RITUALS” OUT TODAY!
BAND ON TOUR IN EUROPE AND THE UK THIS SUMMER – TICKETS HERE!
Today, Winnipeg’s iced cold quitters TUNIC drop new single “Rituals” via Toronto-based-label Artoffact Records. A song about the inner dialogues of addiction, it packs a brutal punch with dissonant noise leading to absolute hardcore chaos. Listen to now on Spotify, Bandcamp or Apple Music.
“Featuring two tandem narratives about overcoming addiction and succumbing to it, Rituals was written when we were working on music for our third album. Once we wrapped the writing period, we brought the song to our new bassist Tomas Ingham and it’s the first song that the three of us worked on together,” says David Schellenberg (vocals).
Currently, Tunic are on the road bringing their dazzling hardcore chaos and spazzy blasts to crowds across North America and later this summer the band will be hitting Europe and the UK for a 13-date tour. All tickets and info can be found at THIS location. All tour dates below.

MORE ABOUT TUNIC:
Formed in 2012, Winnipeg’s Tunic was borne of spite — formed after being told Schellenberg “wasn’t good enough” for another band. Abandoning someone else’s dreams for his own, Tunic sought out a sound inspired by the melodic approaches of Quicksand and Superchunk, venom and heartache in Converge and calculated instrumental prowess behind Cult Leader. Releasing their debut 7” in 2015, Tunic has since charged across the globe relentlessly, zigging and zagging as part of more than a dozen jaunts in North America and Europe, as well as tagging shows with a varied lot that includes names like Ken Mode, Single Mothers and even Hank Wood and the Hammerheads. Tunic’s bloodlust for the road has caused some turnover in membership, not to mention bouts with tinnitus, hangovers and exhaustion.
