It's a great trivia question: what was Baby Animals' first release? It was a song called 'Break My Heart', released as a B Side on The Angels' single 'Dogs Are Talking' in 1990. Following the release of the single, Baby Animals went on to support The Angels on their 'Dogs Are Talking' tour, which was Baby Animals' first big tour.

Nearly three decades later, the bands are hitting the road again, for a massive co-headline tour. And to celebrate the tour, they're releasing a brand new single—with a twist. The split single sees The Angels covering 'One Word' from Baby Animals' chart-topping self-titled debut, while Baby Animals deliver a blistering version of The Angels' 'Face To Face' classic 'Marseilles'.

The Angels guitarist Rick Brewster has been a big Baby Animals fan since that initial 1990 tour. "They were one band that I watched every night, I was just so impressed," Rick says. "And I feel the same way about them now. Suze [DeMarchi] is just a monster, an incredible singer. Davie Leslie is one of a handful of guitarists in Australia that I really admire—I just love the way he plays and performs. Dario Bortolin is a fantastic bass player, and he even filled in with us once when Sam [Brewster] couldn't do a gig. And Mick Skelton is a great drummer and a great mate. We've always said "wouldn't it be great to do another tour with Baby Animals," and now it's finally happening."

Baby Animals guitarist Dave Leslie, on the other hand, says The Angels were his "childhood heroes." "That 1990 tour with The Angels was massive for us—it really was our big break." Covering Marseilles was exciting for the band. "It's such a legendary song," Dave says. "And there's so much guitar in it! When you analyse the song and play it, you realise how brilliant Rick is."
