Perth-based 'polished scungers' Rag n' Bone have adopted a new moniker to carry them into their next phase. The move has been brought on by the rise of UK star Rag and Bone Man, resulting in a murder of misdirected Facebook messages, baffling playlist additions and undue congratulations from elderly relatives after viewing The Graham Norton Show. To this, the band says “NO MORE”!

Some great memories came from the time with the former name. The last couple of years saw the band release their debut album A Handful Of Ash, play festivals such as Falls, SOTA, Baybeats (Singapore) and Concrete & Glass (China), and shows with Stiff Little Fingers, Future Of The Left, WAAX, Jen Cloher and Gold Class, to name a few.

To usher in the next phase, NEW TALK has releases a new single ‘Red Tuesday’. Inspired by a devastating bushfire that ravaged through South Gippsland in Victoria at the turn of the 20th century. Recorded by frequent collaborator Dave Parkin, Red Tuesday is a powerful statement on the importance of place and family remembrance, oscillating between vast space and massive distortion and anchored by Kiera Owen's ever-powerful lead vocal.

Accompanying the track is an incredible one shot video directed by Luna Laure of Via Luna Pictures and produced by Pavlova. Luna's vision compliments the song perfectly, using a fiery lighting display tracked through a flooded basement to capture the song's dramatic themes and intensity.'
