In 2012 shoegaze influenced pop rock group MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS “officially” called it quits. Their final official release was the single “Tan Tan Tan”. Since then, the band have regrouped on multiple occasions, doing multiple live shows with multiple lineup changes, but have not released any kind of studio material. That is about to change.
On the first of March (earlier at live venues) 2017, MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS release their return single, “Slow Motion Replay“, a split 7” between them and their vocalist Natsuko Miyamoto. Both sides are the same song, one by the band and one solo version.
