Adam Goren (aka Atom and His Package) has a new band with Brian Sokel (of AM/FM and Franklin) called Dead Best, whose self-titled debut album arrives December 10 via Don Giovanni (pre-order). As the band's bio points out, Adam and Brian had toured together for years, released music on each other's self-run labels, and Atom and His Package paid tribute to Brian's former band with a song called "For Franklin," but they never collaborated on music until they got to talking during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The album's first single is opening track "Life, Love, and Liberty," an 85-second noise-punk ripper that sets an appealing tone for this LP and sounds pretty promising. Give it a listen below.
