Protomartyr stream new song ‘I Forgive You’

Taken from their upcoming ‘The Agent Intellect’ LP

With Protomartyr’s new LP ‘The Agent Intellect’ fast approaching, the Detroit-based post-punk mob have unveiled a second cut, the fidgety ‘I Forgive You’.

Screeching, jittery guitars form the track’s predominant thread, as vocalist Joe Casey’s downbeat drawl, drags things through the dirt. When held up against the previously unveiled ‘Why Does It Shake?’ and ‘Dope Cloud’, it’s evidence of Protomartyr’s ability to warp expectations while still keeping things wrapped tight in their familiar post-punk guise.

‘The Agent Intellect’ will be released via Hardly Art on October 9th (that’s next Friday, fact fans). To celebrate, the band have plotted a number of UK dates alongside fellow bruisers METZ - those are as follows:

OCTOBER
30th Brighton, Green Door Store
31st Leeds, Brudenell Social Club

NOVEMBER
1st London, Scala
3rd Bristol, The Fleece
4th Manchester, Sound Control
5th Glasgow, Stereo
6th Birmingham, The Rainbow Cellar
7th Cardiff, Swn Festival

For her new opus, ‘Whole New Mess’ finds Angel Olsen looking to the future but reaching back to the past, to an emotionally-purging set of recordings that would lead the singer to her rawest work yet.
