Midwestern indie godfathers Cursive are back with their first ominous dose of angular, heartbroken rock in six years. Below, hear frontman Tim Kasher and co. fret monetarily on new song “Life Savings.” The band’s new album Vitriola hits Oct. 5.

Vitriola follows the group’s seventh LP, 2012’s I Am Gemini, issued on longtime label Saddle Creek. For the new album, the Omaha, Nebraska-based band have started their own imprint, 15 Passenger, to release the Mike Mogis-produced set.

As for the theme of Cursive’s new set, Kasher says Vitriola was written “as a reaction to an ulcer I now live with as a result of all the ‘vitriol’ seeping into our daily lives. Rather than contributing to the anger, hopefully this record can be witnessed as a reflection of our collective anxieties, and perhaps offer a little catharsis.”
