My Iron Lung

My Iron Lung may share a name with one of the best Radiohead songs, but don't expect post-everything art rock from these guys. Their new record, Relief, comes out on July 8 via Pure Noise, and it's an album of speaker-shredding post-hardcore. Its single, "Commonwealth," channels Refused's aggression into the passionate sounds of modern screamo a la Touche Amore and early La Dispute. And while it's not math rock, the guitars can get pretty noodly. The video for "Commonwealth" (dir. Blood Orange Visual) premieres in this post and can be watched below.

My Iron Lung also have a tour coming up, following the release of the record, opening for fellow post-hardcore bands Hundredth and Counterparts, along with Handguns, Being As An Ocean and Capsize. The tour doesn't hit NYC but will be nearby for a Long Island show at Amityville's Revolution bar and Music Hall on July 27. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

Their name comes from a Method Man lyric.
