Athens, GA’s Twin Tigers will release their second album, Death Wish, next week (4/9) via Old Flame Records. You can get a taste of the gothy psych therein via first single “Racecar,” which you can download the MP3 above, and we’ve got the premiere of its video in this post. The stark black-and-white clip features, pills, speeding, blunt objects, rope and possibly illegal organ transplants. The band’s Matthew Rain explains:

The realer than life feel of the missing eye came from Logan (drummer) being a cancer survivor. He got cancer in his left eye at age 4 and had to have it removed. The abuse for logan was pretty extreme as he got tackled to the ground about ten times and had an asthma attack from being left in the tub of ice between shots. When I (matthew) wrote the story for the video I didn’t know how bad that would be for him. When Logan showed it to his mom she was so uncomfortable she couldn’t finish it.

You can watch that video below. Twin Tigers are also gearing up for a tour which hits NYC for two stops: April 25 at Glasslands (tickets) with Honduras and The Teen Age; and April 26 at Pianos (tickets) with Nude Pop. All tour dates are listed below.
