TOUTS have released their new track ‘Before We Go Forward’ on Very Clever Records. The track is a cover of a ‘lost’ song from the legendary Joe Strummer, originally recorded by The Clash frontman in 1984. All profits made from the song will be donated to the Joe Strummer Foundation.

Speaking about the cover, the band explained:

We loved the tune from the get go. It’s a serious hidden gem. We are honoured to be part of the history of it by re-recording a Joe Strummer song. Upon actually looking at the lyrics, it’s eerily relevant to what’s going on in today’s world, both in the popular social and political climate and the culture in which we live.’
