Protomartyr share new track ‘Don’t Go To Anacita’
26th September 2017
This Friday, Protomartyr release their fourth album, Relatives In Descent, their debut for new label home Domino. Prior to its release, the band share the third single off Relatives, and perhaps one of their most straight-forward and anthemic songs to date. ‘Don't Go To Anacita’ takes place in a fictional town of singer Joe Casey's invention, a sort of everytown created to catch Casey's ire.
The quartet have also announced that they will play London’s Rough Trade East as part of their November European and UK headline tour. Full dates below
Across the pond, exciting things are also afoot - late last week; CDs of Relatives In Descent were surreptitiously slipped into the jukeboxes of several dive bars in Detroit and New York. People in those cities hoping to get a "pre-release stream" of the album are encouraged to head to The Levee and Old Stanley's in Brooklyn, Bumbo's in Hamtramck, or Bronx Bar in Detroit, and load their laundry quarters into those music-streaming machines.
Additionally, last Friday marked the band's sold out Detroit record release show, which developed into something of a mini-festival. Onboard the Detroit Princess riverboat, the band were joined by friends METZ, Preoccupations, ADULT., Tyvek, and Matthew Dear, as well as local DJs, food purveyors, charities, a screening of the films like Captain Ron and Waterworld, and cutouts where fans could take photos as "bike guy" for example.
Relatives In Descent is available to pre-order now on limited edition purple/white starburst vinyl, CD and digital download.
