Celebrated Columbus, OH based garage punk act the New Bomb Turks have a pair of shows scheduled. The band will appear at Boston's Abbey Lounge on August 19th with the Turpentine Brothers, Spitzz and Secret Hearts. The band will later convene in Cleveland, OH on September 5th for a date at the Beachland Ballroom with legendary early Australian punk band Radio Birdman.

The Turks embarked on what was supposedly final tour back in 2002, and have since played the sporadic shows in the US and Europe. The band released their final proper full length The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still in 2002, followed a year later by the rarities collection Switchblade Tongues, Butterknife Brains.
