Your Homicidols Weekender #384

Like many of you, I spent this past week living vicariously through Oomfs  attending WACK in the UK 2: Electric Boogaloo featuring ASP, GANG PARADE, and KiSS KiSS. This time, the opportunities for cheki were plentiful and an excellent time appears to have been had by all. 

At the end of the festivities it was announced that, this coming August 28th, London will be host to WACK in the UK 3: This Time it’s Personal.  In the third iteration, ASP will again be making an appearance alongside MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN TONAi BOUSHO (a.k.a. MONSTERIDOL), and the long, long, long, long, long, long awaited Western debut of BiS.

My favorite moment from the week was this lovely interaction between ASP fans and a street performer. “Blueberry Gum” will bring the world together!!

WARNING: This is just a timely reminder that Monday is April 1st, so when you hear that your favorite punk idol group is rebooting  as a liquid funk folktronica unit, don’t freak out.

Please let the community know of any suspected idol April Fools Day pranks you spot over on the Homicidols Discord server.  There, we can sort fact from fiction and weather this storm together as we do each year.

In news that we wish was just a prank: Broken By the Scream announced that they must postpone their upcoming American tour due to visa issues.
