Bed & Bugs which Sub Pop Records released yesterday is the Brooklyn-based quartet Obits’ third full-length release. “Spun Out,” is the first single from the new effort, and it’s an intense, fidgety bit of anthemic garage rock — with howled (to the point of frayed vocal chords) vocals that pose questions about aging and the power of fame and money with an primal, ass-kicking urgency.
The band will be touring to support their new effort and it’ll include an album release show at the Bell House on September 21st; and stops in Cambridge, MA; Montreal, QC; Toronto, ON; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; Chicago, IL; Columbus; OH; and several others.
The video has a pretty simple concept – the band playing and goofing around while rocking out pretty hard. It’s actually a lot more fun than you think.
