Thomas Tantrum have announced that their new album, ‘Mad By Moonlight’ will be released on June 12th and the single’ Hot Hot Summer’ will be available to download a week before on June 5th. You can see the video for ‘Hot Hot Summer’ below. The band have also announced a headline UK tour set for June. ‘Mad By Moonlight’ is the second album from Southampton’s Thomas Tantrum.  

Based solely around sleep, or lack of it; the album includes references to female insanity, insomnia and things that go bump in the night. Each song is wrapped in a dream like sonic cotton wool and influenced by each members love for wildly varying music whether it be The B-52s, Abba, The Sugarcubes or The Cure. Thomas Tantrum released their debut in 2008 to critical acclaim. Since then they’ve undergone some major changes. They’ve enlisted a new drummer, Dave Wade Brown, and front woman Megan Thomas’s voice has matured.
