ASG Announce New Tour + Album, Debut Title Track


Big news for everyone who enjoyed the melodic psychedelia of ASG’s 2013 Blood Drive as much as we did: the North Carolina band has finally announced a follow-up. It’s called Survive Sunrise (I guess it’s pro-vampire) and will drop June 15 on Relapse. Naturally, with a new album comes a new single — in this case the title track — and new tour dates — in this case in both the U.S. and Europe.

Here’s the extremely rad, presumably Mucha-inspired covered art by Malleus:

And here’s the title track, which is everything you want from an ASG song: it’s harmonic, it’s catchy, just listening to it boosts your THC level, and it’s a got a beat the kids can dance to. I hereby declare it a winner.
