Oh Sees Share Video For “Poisoned Stones”


Oh Sees have shared the animated and uber cool video for their new track “Poisoned Stones” today. The video depicts, well, you can figure out what it depicts just by watching it.  Remember all of the cool kids are watching it. It may be better than some of the shit streaming or on television.

Last month the band announced a new double LP titled Face Stabber. Along with the LP announcement, the band shared the 20+ minute track “Henchlock”. Face Stabber is out 8/16 via Castle Face Records. The band will also go on a North American tour this fall. Hear what John Dwyer has to say about the album below.  Tour Dates follow.   

Hey there, human kids,  
Lift your face out of the feed trough and pluck that feculence from your ears. Hark! A sonar blip from beneath the pile of bodies.  Boop, blip ughhh…. 
People churning like a boiling swamp. Man, this din is nauseating.  
The screen flickers for the first time this year with a transmission from two months in the future: 
“the internet has deemed guitar music dead and you are free to do whatever the fuck you like ….long live the new flesh!” 
This album is Soundcloud hip-hop reversed, a far flung nemesis of contemporary country and flaccid algorithmic pop-barf. 
No songs about money or love are floating in the ether. 
Just memories, echoes, foggy blurs 
Blip-blop goes the scope  
Heavy funk  
Dystopia-punk canons 
Lonnnnng jams  
Bloated solos dribbling down your caved-in chest. 
Human cattle like a beef avalanche, right on your burned out face hole. 
Spider legs fuzz crawling in your brain.  
Lots of curse words for your mom. 
You’ve gotten the over-population blues, so let’s have some art for art’s sake. 
What else are you gonna do? 
Stare at the sky? Please… 
50 carbon copies of you look back at you as you walk the streets. 
Take a breath, you’re going to need it. 
Take drugs, you’re going to need those just to stand in line at the air and water reclamation center soon enough. 
There’s no fruit, buddy. 
You’re at the bleak-peak. 
They will squeeze you till you’re all squeezed out. 
For fans of fried prog burn out, squished old-school drool, double drums, lead weight bass, wizard keys (now with poison), old-ass guitar and horrible words with daft meanings. 
If you don’t like it then don’t listen, bub.  
Back to the comments section with you! 
Over and out  
It’s out on Castle-Face Records August 16th
