Stephen Malkmus shares “Rushing The Acid Frat” from new LP, expands tour


Stephen Malkmus has shared “Rushing the Acid Frat” from his forthcoming solo album Groove Denied. While much of album has Malkmus playing around with synthesizers and drum machines, this is more of guitar number in kind of a “Wild Thing” kind of way. The psychedelic, animated video for the song was directed by Robert Strange of the group Superorganism and you can watch that below.

Groove Denied is out March 15 via Matador and Malkmus will be heading out on a Jicks-free solo tour this spring, which he’s just added a few more dates to, including a NYC show happening at The Kitchen on May 2. Tickets for that will be available soon. He’s also added a new Chicago show on May 8 at Fullerton Hall. Before The Kitchen show, S.M. will be talking with Vanity Fair‘s Michael Hogan at 92Y on April 30. There will also be a short performance as part of the event and tickets are on sale.

Additionally, Eleanor Friedberger has been added as support for most East Coast shows (but not NYC), and Mary Lattimore will be opening for a couple shows in California. Updated dates are listed below.
