Florida emo-punks Dikembe are teaming up with AP to bring you the premiere of their new song, “Snakes In My Path.” The track is taken from the band’s upcoming sophomore LP, Mediumship, which is due out on July 22 via Tiny Engines. Listen to the song below, and let us know your thoughts.

"'Snakes In My Path’ was the first song we wrote for what would eventually become Mediumship,” says singer Steven Gray. “Musically, I think it’s a nice summary of the tonality of the record, which is overall slower and more dynamic. Lyrically, it’s about the bravest thing I have ever seen. It's probably the song I'm most proud of."

Pre-orders for Mediumship are on sale now. Starting next month, the band will be on tour with Weatherbox. (You can see the full list of dates below the song.) If you missed it, hear another new song from the album, “Get Harder.”
