Fresh from a rocking mid-afternoon Forbidden Fruit set in June, Shit Robot announces his first live Irish headliners as he brings The Shit Robot Show to Dublin and Galway this September.
Shit Robot – aka Marcus Lambkin – has just released ‘Space Race’ b/w ‘Teenage Bass’ - his first new material since the release of his debut long-player, From The Cradle To The Rave. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show – including a string of dates opening/performing with LCD Soundsystem during their final shows in NYC - the rebooted Robot is back with The Green Machine.
The first result of his Stuttgart/New York studio adventures is a double-header of dancefloor jams, “Teenage Bass” b/w “Space Race,” which is out now. It’s the first in a series of releases called The Green Machine, which will culminate in an album early next year.

Speaking about the new release, Shit Robot said: “After the album I just wanted to go back to my roots and make some dance 12”s, music for people to get drunk and jump around to.” A limited number of each of The Green Machine 12” have sold-out on pre-order from the DFA webstore.
Shit Robot is just at the end of a busy summer of shows playing the likes of Benicassim; Razmatazz (Barcelona); The Nest (London w/ Factory Floor and Juan Maclean); Wavefront (Chicago) For more, see www.shitrobot.com.
