On this date in 1982, Theatre Of Hate released their sixth single, "Eastworld". It was backed by "Assegai". The 12" version had different mixes of the two 7-inch tracks plus an additional song, "Poppies". None of the tracks appeared on an album as the band disbanded just four month's after this release. The London post-punk/gothic band was led by Kirk Brandon who was previously in The Pack. Theatre Of Hate disbanded in 1983. Kirk Brandon formed Spear Of Destiny. Guitarist Billy Duffy went on to The Cult.
