2013 marks the 20th anniversary of seminal Australian punk band Nancy Vandal, and to celebrate the occasion they're releasing a new album, Flogging a Dead Phoenix and heading out on an East Coast tour this October.

Flogging A Dead Phoenix is the band’s first album since 'I’ve Wasted My Life' in 1999 and was recorded by ex-bassist Jason “Jason” Beers, more commonly known as the frontman of fellow punk rock heritage item Frenzal Rhomb and has been described as "a chaotic blend of garagey punk infused with Motorhead riffs and a brass section that would shrink Chuck Norris’s balls."
Flogging a Dead Phoenix was partly financed by an enthusiastically supported Pozible project and will be accompanied by a massive 92 page full colour edition of the band’s official zine The Vandal’s Voice.

Flogging A Dead Phoenix will be available online and a shows from September 3rd.

A bit about Nancy Vandal: The year is 1993. A small group of what appear to be circus prostitutes step out of their Bat & Ball Hotel toilet dressing room and leap upon the stage. They thrill the assembled crowd with their trashy punk rock and roll stylings then pause briefly to perform a puppet show. The band is Nancy Vandal and within a few short years they will be tearing up stages all over the country and bringing a sense of whimsy to festivals including Homebake, Livid, Falls, and The Pushover. During that time they would release five cult classic records and have anthems such as 'Rock and Roll Concert' and 'Move Over Satan' envelop the triple J airwaves like a drunken cuddle.

The turn of the century saw their output decrease significantly due to fears the millennium bug would damage band equipment as well as a severe outbreak of nits. They have since performed only occasionally based on tarot card readings and prevailing weather conditions, however to celebrate their 20 year anniversary team Vandal have decided to take things up a notch.
