Published Oct 10, 2017While it's been a few years since we've heard from No Age, the band are now back with a new album. Titled Snares Like a Haircut, the record will arrive on January 26 via the duo's new label home of Drag City.
The album follows 2013's An Object, and in typical Drag City fashion, the label has whipped up quite the description of No Age's latest. Here's how the album description from the label reads:
With the world around us bruised and bloodied with teeth already dug into the concrete curb, we find ourselves with the shadow of a large boot looming overhead. What better time for No Age? They know how to ecstatically rage & power on thru pain, because what else are you gonna do? The future belongs to the cockroaches, and this record is made for the disparate band of misfits who 2017 couldn't kill.
Snares Like a Haircut sounds like the good shit, and smells like the buzzy burning off of an aura, the marine layer suddenly vanished, leaving a thin layer of smog over the songs, simmering sock gazing tunes, revved and displacing enormous amounts of sound soil. With Snares Like a Haircut, No Age scrub the itch in the little moments, engage actively with the process and carve/plaster/shave something in an album shape that'll last.
Re-imagined rippers, compelling ever forward; something that provokes challenges on the ear. That was always the goal, but after a few years spent not No Age-ing, just working on that thing called life, is it any wonder that Dean and Randy wanted to pump out some rock and roll for the black hole? Does time mean nothing to you? Don't answer that.
You can try to make sense of that album by actually hearing a bit of the album with the newly shared teaser track "Snares Like a Haircut," which is down below the tracklist. You can pre-order the record here.
