ELASTICA will release two brand new tracks on their single, Mad Dog, nme.com can confirm.

The single will be released on June 12 through Deceptive, on CD and limited edition seven-inch vinyl. It will feature two new tracks, ‘Suicide’ and ‘Bushbaby’ across the formats. Also on the single will be an enhanced CD-ROM video of ‘Mad Dog’ and remixes of the title track by the Away Team and Ashley Beadle.

‘Suicide’ was at one point being touted as a future single itself, and was debuted by the band at the London Kentish Town Forum on April 13. At that show, one eyewitness described the track as “experimental, punk dub”.

Elastica play the Dublin Temple Bar Music Centre tonight (May 11), and then make three festival appearances at the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton (June 23-25) and the Carling Weekend Festivals in Reading and Leeds over the August Bank Holiday Weekend (August 25-28).
