CLASH Goes Wine Tasting With Wine Lips

Toronto garage rockers pillage the wine rack...

Just like how red wine stains your lips, Toronto garage rockers Wine Lips are destined to be stained in your memory. Formed in 2015, the band have had a strong nine years of drinking wine together and, since their conception, the group have quickly escalated into a full-blown, full-time, full-on international phenomenon. Following albums such as ‘Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party’ and ‘Stressor’, the group now release their fourth record ‘Super Mega Ultra;. To celebrate their new release, the band sit down, crack open a bottle of wine (or four) and talk us through what they are drinking. 

Are they wine connoisseurs? Not quite. Do we care? No. But who better to tell us about cheap, nasty wine than Wine Lips themselves…
