New Arab Strap!

Holy cow! This is the third single from the upcoming new album by Arab Strap? Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton's first album as Arab Strap in... a really long time! How did I miss that this was coming? The good news is the album is out March 5th on Rock Action Records, so it's not long now. The bad news? The vinyl is currently completely Sold Out. I'm hoping for a re-stock, so if you're like me, you'll be checking the Pre-order link for the next few weeks.


Near the end of the newest episode of The Horror Vision Horror Podcast, Ray Larragoitiy asks Tori and me what we're excited about coming out in the next few months. I wasn't prepared for the question at that time and was pretty bummed to realize I could barely think of a thing. Seems like the COVID effect on productions has finally caught up to us. There are a few things, though. One of them is this:

Ben Wheatley's new film In the Earth should be along within the next few months (I hope) and I for one can't wait. 


Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou - The Helm of Sorrow 
Thou - Rhea Sylvia
Arab Strap - As Days Get Dark (pre-release singles)
Alice in Chains - Dirt
The Veils - Nux Vomica
U2 - War
The Twilight Singers - Dynamite Steps
Trust Obey - Fear and Bullets
The Soft Moon - Feel (single)
Joy Division - Closer
Nothing - The Great Dismal
Exhalants - Atonement


 Taxes are good.

I really, really dig this new Arab Strap track, and i too noticed that the LP was already sold out from Rock Action. I will say that during the pandemic when a band or label or bandcamp has been sold out of a record, i've had pretty decent luck pre-ordering from any of the local record stores in Austin for curbside pick-up.
