Sheer Mag Sign to Third Man Records, Share New Song "All Lined Up"

They'll also be playing Montreal and Toronto later this month

Philadelphia underground rockers Sheer Mag have announced their signing to Jack White's Third Man Records — the band's first partnership with a large independent label — and shared their debut single for the label, "All Lined Up." 

The song finds the four-piece in fierce form, folding a rollicking funk rhythm below their scratchy, tuneful throwback rock. "All Lined Up" and its accompanying video are described as working "in themes of high-risk anticipation and the bleary-eyed romance of a late night spent amongst old friends."

In a statement, the band said:

The genesis of "All Lined Up" stems from late nights at the bar playing pool. Last call has long come and gone, the gate is down, the ashtrays are out and your friend behind the bar is giving it all away. Despite the revelry, there's a looming sense of dread — a fear that no matter how far ahead you get, all it takes is one bad shot to lose the game.

In addition to releasing their new music, Third Man Records will also be physically and digitally re-releasing the entirety of Sheer Mag's back catalogue, including their early EPs I (2014), II (2015), and III (2016), plus their first two LPs, Need to Feel Your Love (2017) and A Distant Call (2019). 

The band have also announced a tour coinciding with the news, and will be playing Montreal and Toronto later this month.
