Two of our favourite new punk bands to emerge in recent years, Hot Mulligan and Spanish Love Songs, will be touring the UK together later this year.
The tour is in support of Hot Mulligan‘s forthcoming album, ‘Why Would I Watch’, which is set to be released on May 12th.
So you can expect a mix of the headliner’s brand of pop-punk vibes with a smattering of midwestern emo twinkling. While the supporting Spanish Love Songs will be bringing their brand of introspective anthemic punk.
Tell me more about Hot Mulligan’s new album
Lansing, Michigan four-piece, Hot Mulligan, will be releasing their third album, ‘Why Would I Watch’, through Wax Bodega on May 12th.
It’s been described as their “loudest, poppiest, and most poignant” record to date. Recent singles, ‘Gans Media Retro Games’ and ‘Shhhh! Golf is On’ definitely backs up that statement, continuing the moment the quartet has built in recent years.

What have Spanish Love Songs been up to lately?
Spanish Love Songs have just released a new covers EP – ‘Doom & Gloom Sessions’. It includes a brilliant take of The Killers‘ ‘Smile Like You Mean It’. The four-track set is a snapshot of several covers the band has produced for their Patreon supporters. It also seems a follow-up to 2020’s LP, ‘Brave Faces Everyone’ could be on the way.
Spanish Love Songs will make a brief trip to the UK for a headline show in London followed by an appearance at the Slam Dunk Festival.
