Poptone is a group formed in early 2017 by Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins and Diva Dompé (Haskins' daughter). Ash and Haskins were both formerly of Bauhaus, Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets, and the Bubblemen.

In their initial press release, the band announced, "Daniel and Kevin are revisiting their storied catalogue and presenting in a fresh, new direction, to combine their histories with a reinvigorated outlook for new tours and potentially new music".[1]

An eponymous live album recorded at various stops on the tour was self-released on 17 December 2017, funded through PledgeMusic.[2]

Haskins has provisionally planned their studio release for May/June 2018.[3]

Reception[edit]
