Published Aug 15, 2017Toronto post-punk unit Outer Rooms delivered their debut LP Worldless Fantastic last summer, and they're already gearing up to release the follow-up. Before the band officially drop Even in the Cannon's Mouth, though, Exclaim! is giving you a preview of the sophomore album with the premiere of its title track.
The upcoming LP was recorded with producer Jeff McMurrich over the course of five days this past May, and stands as a "raw, faithful document" of the band's live shows. The new set of songs addresses the "daily flood of sickness, violence, and numbing everyday concerns" permeating modern media, and emphasizes the importance of human connection amidst the chaos.
"Even in the Cannon's Mouth" demonstrates that frenzied, anxious feeling with driving guitars, persistent percussion and lyrics about waiting for the world to end. Get your first listen to the new single in the player down below.
