Ty Segall announces new LP ‘First Taste’ (listen to “Taste”)

Ty Segall First Taste by Denée Segall

It’s been about a year since we’ve had a new Ty Segall studio album which is, like, forever for him. You won’t have to wait much longer, though, as Ty’s just announced new album First Taste which will be out August 2 via Drag City. The record has him expanding his sonic palette, incorporating koto, recorder, bouzouki, harmonizer, mandolin, saxophones and brass, and more into his psych-rock sound. The first single is “Taste,” an awesome, bongo-fueled wig-out that comes with a phantasmagoric, horror-themed video that makes room for a little song-and-dance too. Watch that below.

Ty Segall & The Freedom Band have extended residencies in Los Angeles, Brooklyn and London where he’s playing albums from his catalog in full. He’s just announced that at each of those shows, they’ll play First Taste in full, too.

They’ve also announced openers for the residency shows and the Brooklyn shows at Warsaw will be opened by LA garage-punk trio Lamps (10/1), frequent Ty collaborators White Fence (10/2), and Japanese mind-blowers DMBQ (10/3-10/5). Tickets for all five are still available (though five-night passes are sold-out). Openers for the LA shows include Lamps, The Intelligence, Warm Drag, Richard Rose, Vice Cooler, Oog Bogo, King Tuff and DMBQ.

All dates are listed below.
