To get warmed up and ready for what looks to be a very busy gigging autumn we will be playing a couple of exclusive intimate shows in Leicester's The Shed and Manchester's Fab Cafe in summer. We will be all over the country in September and October with plenty of gigs to satisfy even the most demanding plastic buddy in the most remote part of the Kingdom. We also might reach the continent in November, but those European dates are still being organised.
New gig dates for autumn will be announced here and on other social platforms - so make sure to save some dates and come party with us! We promise, it is going to be one hell of an autumn!
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW!

If you take an ordinary goldfish and put it into a big tank - it will grow big. If you manage to find a massive tank for it - the fish will become MASSIVE! The environment affects the size of the goldfish, the same way that our environment affects our own growth.
Recorded at Shed Studios, NW London
Drum tracking by Ian Hansen and Jonny Breakwell at Resident Studios, London
Mixing: Carl John Perkins, Bad Cow Studios, Isle of Wight Festival
Mastering: Andy Hippy Baldwin, Metropolis Studios, London
Artwork: Elina Pasok
Released on Plastic Tribe Records on the 17th of April 2017
AND HERE IT IS - the artwork for our new single "How Goldfish Grow!" Created by our dear Elina Pasok it follows the theme of impossible objects, present in our other singles for "Mechanics of Life" album!
The song has gone through the final stage of production today at Metropolis Studios in West London. We are once again honoured to be working with legendary Andy "Hippy" Baldwin behind the mastering desk!

SINGLE RELEASE - 17th of APRIL!
Did you know that if you put an ordinary goldfish into a bigger tank it will grow bigger? Now you know! In other news - our newest single "How Goldfish Grow" will be out ON THE 17TH OF APRIL!
This song was a definite live favourite for the last year and slowly made it's way to the very end of the setilist, sort of a grand finale! The track was recorded at our Shed Studios this autumn, with drum tracking done at Resident Studios in North-West London. Our new friend and a very talented engineer Carl Perkins mixed the song at his quirky Bad Cow Studio on the Isle of Wight. This Friday the song will get it's final treatment by our all-time favourite mastering magician Andy Hippie Baldwin at the legendary West London Metropolis Studio. Meanwhile, our dear artist Elina Pasok is getting ready to reveal the artwork for the single, which will follow the trend of our previous art for "Mechanics of Life" singles and WILL indeed feature yet another impossible object!
But WAIT! There is MORE! Our long time dream of having an animated music video has finally come true! Cartoon created by an incredible artist Tiziano Pilustri is both strikingly simplistic and sincerely expressive! The video will premier together with the single on the 17th of April! SO GET YOUR EYES AND EARS READY!
HEY-HEY-HEY! Our brand new music video for "Half of your Soul", directed by our dear Elina Pasok, is out TODAY! Head to the VIDEO section to watch it now!
What an amazing gig at the legendary Spice of Life in London's Soho! Despite the nasty weather, parking chaos and bass amp cutting out we had a blast! Front row dancing was very inspiring indeed. It is always fun when a gig is on a brink of a riot. Thank you all who packed this cult venue till the roof and danced till the curfew!
We are planning to spend February finishing arrangement and mixes for 6 songs of "Mechanics of Life" LP. But we do have some goodies already planned for you. First of all get ready for "Half of Your Soul" music video. This turned out to be one of our all time favourite recordings (although we are not playing this song live) so we decided that it deserves a cute and heartfelt music video that you can send to the ones you love as a digital postcard, a symbol of your devotion. Keep you eyes peeled.
We are also working on a stripped back acoustic set that we will film at our Shed Studios sometime soon - so you can discover the softer side of PB.
NEXT GIG will commence on the 2nd of March - in SOUTHAMPTON, on stage of Talking Heads Club! Not only will we be playing a very special set for The Edge Magazine festival "Edgetival" but also celebrating Jonas' B-DAY! Tickets are on SALE NOW - don't miss your chance, dear southerners! As for the rest of UK citizens who would like proof that we are in fact real humans - wait till May comes! We will be touring a lot from then till the end of the year!
