Wartoad Release Ambitious Amphibious Christmas Attack Plan!

Wartoad have entered our lives and won’t let anything stand in their path. Comprising a cast of thousands (maybe slightly fewer), including some shadowy individuals who are EXTREMELY well-known in the rock scene, Wartoad have planted their flag in the ground and targeted the Christmas market for their first release – a cover of Slade‘s Merry Xmas Everybody (re-titled as Merry Christmas Everybody – even punks have better spelling than glam rock legends!)

The single is an appropriately dynamic, thousand mile-an-hour hurtle through a track the entire world knows inside out, yet their re-appropriation as an anthem attacking the route the Western World is taking us towards mass unemployment and democratic disaster turns the age-old standard into a completely fiery breath of fresh air.  Ever the benevolent ones, they are donating a percentage of each single’s sale to the London charity, The Passage, which works on behalf of homeless people to help them get their lives back on track. In true punk fashion, the charity has distanced themselves from the band’s anarchy as far as possible, though the money will still go their way!

This Christmas single is only the start of a new “spawn” (sorry) of rebellion, where “newt” (again, sorry) frontiers are explored and their forthcoming album will “hop-fully” (sigh) leave music fans “toad-ally” ecstatic (I’m off)
