Check out this exclusive stream of "Capybara" from Farewell Continental's new album, ¡Hey, Hey Pioneers!, out May 10 on Paper + Plastick. Frontman Justin Pierre explains the song:

"Tommy went on an expedition to South America in the late '90's to study the Capybara in their natural habitat.  For years afterward we'd hear nothing but Capybara This and Capybara That. To say the least, it got real annoying.  At one practice we were attempting to mimic animal sounds with our guitars (we're big Steve Vai fans) and Tommy came up with the intro to the song claiming it was the sound of, you guessed it: The Capybara.  So this is an ode to our furry friends who live south of the border.  A gothic teenage Capybara love affair."
