On Tour Now!

Detroit post punk quartet Protomartyr have shared a sinister new track called ‘Born to be Wine’ as the 11th installment in the Adult Swim Singles Series. Proceeding at a dirge like crawl and alternating between an eerie guitar line and jagged feedback, the track features vocalist Joe Casey speaking rather than singing in a stream of consciousness diatribe and an atonal brass section. Basically, it’s the soundtrack to a hangover.

““Born To Be Wine” was written and recorded in two days in March of this year, ” says Joe Casey in the press release. “It was recorded by Chris Koltay at his Hi Bias Studio in Detroit and features contributions from Zak Bratto and Jake Kmiecik-Percussion, John Olson and Wade Kergan-Sax, and Trevor Naud-Dulcimer. The title comes from mishearing a Frenchman talking about his favorite rock and roll songs, while the lyrical sentiment takes in louche, elder rockers confined to man caves and a list of fearsome things that were ruminated on during a particularly dire phone interview.”
