Brooklyn skate punks Cerebral Ballzy are to release their debut single proper via Moshi Moshi on November 29th.

‘Insufficient Fare’ – a slurred hardcore rant about not having enough bucks to ride the train – follow’s the band’s self-released ‘You’re Idle’ EP (a limited 7″ that came in a hand-sprayed griptape sleeve) and their ‘Live In Toronto’ cassette tape, released by Tape Alarm.

Brooklyn skate punks Cerebral Ballzy are to release their debut single proper via Moshi Moshi on November 29th.

‘Insufficient Fare’ – a slurred hardcore rant about not having enough bucks to ride the train – follows the band’s self-released ‘You’re Idle’ EP (a limited 7″ that came in a hand-sprayed grip tape sleeve) and their ‘Live In Toronto’ cassette tape, released by Tape Alarm.

Moshi Moshi and Ballzy may seem like an unlikely pairing, but the London label is nothing if not an imprint with a eclectic pallet, having released everyone from Teeth to The Very Best to Au Revoir Simone to Late of The Pier before now. Next month they’ll be redefining modern grime with Becoming Real’s ‘Spectre’ EP, shortly before ‘Insufficient Fare’ hits the shelves, comes in a sleeve not of griptape but one designed by Raymond Pettibon, the man behind Black Flag‘s logo and stark, disturbing artwork.

The single will also be available at the band’s live shows two week’s prior to November 29th.
