Foiled Again  EP Out June 3rd Via Carpark Records.

How on the heels of their acclaimed album Foil Deer, Speedy Ortiz have announced a new EP named Foiled Again. The EP works as an addendum to the album and includes two out-takes from the session along with two remixes of Foil Deer’s ‘Puffer’ — one version featuring rapper Lizzo with edits by Doomtree Collective member Lazerbeak and another by hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle.. Listen to ‘Death Note’ from the EP above.

Frontwoman Sadie Dupuis explains, “‘Death Note’ is named after the anime, which is about an evil supernatural notebook that causes the death of anyone whose name is written inside of it. The song is about writing through your depression as a way to get better, and how in that way a death note can be kind of love letter to yourself.”

Foiled Again EP track-list:

1. Death Note
2. Puffer feat. Lizzo (Lazerbeak Remix)
3. Emma O
4. Puffer (Open Mike Eagle Remix)
