Tuesday just got its ass kicked. A heady, two-minute-long new MISSION OF BURMA track, "Dust Devil," has surfaced on music mp3-sharing site RCRD LBL. A little more than two months ago, before the post-punk pioneers' two-night stand at Brighton Music Hall in Allston, the Phoenix's Matt Parish talked to Roger Miller about the band's upcoming album, which they recorded and completed in their home practice space after initially throwing away their first batch of new songs since 2009's The Sound The Speed The Light. (You can also find an extended Q&A of the Miller interview here).
But this is the first time we're getting a proper listen, in advance of the June 9 release of the new record, so let's dig right in with this choice blurbage from RCRD LBL's Carter Maness:
Mission Of Burma simply aren't going to settle down. No slide guitar, no reflection on marriage and children, no playing drums with brushes or duets. Mission Of Burma will always do pummeling post-punk with a relentless ferocity, and this new one, "Dust Devil," is certainly up to snuff. Their upcoming album, Unsound, is their first in three years and will be released by Fire Records on July 9.
