“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherf**ker,’ a song about accountability,” explained Roddy Bottum. “Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage… y’know, stuff like that.”
The single will be available as a limited edition seven-inch on Record Store Day’s Black Friday event (Nov. 28) and as a digital release on Dec. 9. The B-side of the physical release is a remix of the track by JG Thirlwell.
The band are currently working on a full-length album that will be released in April via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings.
