Palehound have released a new single "My Evil" from their upcoming album Eye on the Bat, coming July 14 via Polyvinyl.

"'My Evil' is about the extremely humbling experience of realizing that yes, you are the asshole," Palehound's leader El Kempner said in a statement. "Sometimes when you try so hard to be a 'good person' you're actually swinging so far and recklessly that you make a full circle back to being a shithead. It can be very hard to forgive yourself, and this song is a portrait of that struggle for me."

"My Evil" comes with a music video that draws inspiration from the iconic opening credits from The Sopranos. Kempner said of making the video:

The Sopranos is a show that's been constantly on loop in my life for the past few years. When I got the idea to make a video based on the intro credits of Tony driving through Jersey, I knew I had to do it with my friend Richard Orofino. He's possibly even a bigger Sopranos fan than I am and he did an incredible job mapping out a lot of the original locations from the show… this whole thing was super DIY, just me and Richard (and his camcorder) having the time of our lives and being embarrassing superfans. It's not exactly shot-for-shot of the original but, to brag for a sec, I'm truly amazed at how close we were able to get it.
