New Album The Agent Intellect  Out October 9th Via Hardly Art.

It’s no secret around here that Overblown absolutely loves Detroit post punks Protomartyr. Today they have shared ‘Dope Cloud’, a standout track from their upcoming third album The Agent Intellect which is set to be released on October 9th via Sub Pop imprint Hardly Art. It follows the wonderful ‘Why Does It Shake?‘, and sees the band continue to explore their signature taut, economical, dry sound. Lyrically, the track deals with lost ownership and the futility of creature comforts in our modern world. As ever Joe Casey’s lyrics are as evocative as they are meaningful, painting images of a “saltmine racist gang” and a “pizza king” swollen with riches. Ultimately the song asserts that things like riches, religion, and passivity won’t save an individual and asks what will?

Pre-order the vinyl via Hardly Art.
