A Laughing Death In Meatspace is the debut studio album by Australian rock band Tropical Fuck Storm, released in May 2018 via Tropical Fuck Storm Records and Mistletone.

Tropical Fuck Storm are a rock band formed in 2017 by Gareth Liddiard (guitar, vocals) and Fiona Kitschin (bass, vocals) after their previous band The Drones went into hiatus at the end of 2016. They recruited Erica Dunn (guitars, keyboards, vocals) and Lauren Hammel (drums) to work on new material that they had been developing.

Their debut album A Laughing Death In Meatspace was released in 2018 to positive reviews.

Liddiard and other members of the band utilized a range of obscure digital guitar effects, synthesizers, drum machines, and DAW software such as ProTools to create the music. Finished less than eight months after their first few live performances, the speed at which the album was recorded also had a heavy influence on its unconventional sound and approach.

For the music, the band listed a range of diverse influences in their interviews, including Fela Kuti, GZA, Mohamed Rouicha, Timbaland, and Captain Beefheart; whilst critics have widely differed in describing its sound. The lyrics, written by Liddiard with contributions from other members, have been described as apocalyptic and darkly humorous; and are more direct in tackling subjects such as technological advancement, political polarization, socioeconomic inequality, xenophobia, culture wars and many others.

The album title links a Silicon Valley slang for the physical world with the neurodegenerative disorder of kuru found in the Fore people of Papua New Guinea.

The album reached #25 on the Australian ARIA and #46 on the US Billboard Independent albums charts.

This album is on black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Australia via Tropical Fuck Storm Records and Mistletone.
