“Off f**king kilter but totally on point!” — CvltNation
“A quick-moving monument to disaffection. Shades of post-hardcore and noise rock come together in the spirit of cooperative aggression.” — The Obelisk
Canadian noise rock trioTunic share the official video for “Dry Heave” from their forthcoming album today via The Obelisk. Watch and share the hallucinogenic and oddly disorienting “Dry Heave” HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

Tunic launches European tour dates in February, followed immediately by North American dates in Spring 2019. Please see current dates below.
Tunic is born of spite. After years of touring someone else’s bass lines across the globe, David Schellenberg was told he wasn’t good enough. So he did the only logical thing: buy a guitar, quit your long-time band, and abandon everything you think you know about music. Armed with no skill and a blissfully ignorant embrace of discordant noise, Schellenberg started crafting songs, quickly enlisting childhood acquaintance Sam Neal on drums and roommate Rory Ellis on bass.
Over the past 4 years and half a dozen DIY releases, Tunic has managed to unleash and tame their unique blend of noise rock and hardcore. Relentless touring has taken them across Canada, Europe and the States, filling clubs, basements, and abandoned prisons with noise. The band released the single Teeth Showing on Toronto’s Buzz Records in 2018, which they toured with new drummer Dan Unger.
Tunic’s debut album Complexion was recorded in six days in their hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba with Montreal-based engineer and producer Jace Lasek (Suuns, Land of Talk, Wolf Parade). Complexion picks up where previous releases left off; 11 songs of feedback-laden filth laid over churning blows of drum and bass. Harsh verses about hurting those you never meant to hurt; choruses that sever ties where you never thought you had to. This is unconventional hardcore. This is broken indie rock. This is naïve art.
Complexion will be available on LP, CD and download on February 8th, 2018 via Self Sabotage Records (Pre-order at Big Cartel-Self Sabotage).
