You’d be excused for keeping up with the slew of hits that ran amuck yesterday, but that’s why I’m here, a day late and a few dollars short to remind you about this Ex-Cult track. This new single is a straight rocker, blasting forth with these machine gun drum hits that seem barely able to keep up with the pacing. I feel as if this song was crafted specifically for the band’s live set, meant for stalking stages and creating tension with the audience…and that’s only the recorded version. Look for the group’s Negative Growth via In the Red Recordson September 23rd.

Already this week we streamed the new 7″ from Ex Cult, but we have better news for you today: the band have announced their new album, Negative Growth. It seems that the band’s concept of creating an album about “fear and deception” have taken hold in the recording of this new effort; there’s a darkness that pervades this tune,which still holds true to the energetic force the band has always pushed forward. Even the vocals on this track have a different feel, as if they’re being recorded in a bubble or under water; it definitely brings forth the spirit of fear. In the Red Records will be releasing the album later this year, so get ready.
The band has a slew of West Coast/Midwest tour dates in October, including a October 3rd show at Barracuda here in Austin (+3 other Tx shows).
