D Unit

The great Arizona psych punks Destruction Unit haven't released a full length since 2013, which seems longer ago than it really is considering they released two full lengths that year (Deep Trip and Void), as well as a separate two song 7". We did get three new songs last year, but on September 18 we'll finally get a new long-player, Negative Feedback Resistor, via Sacred Bones.

They just dropped its first single, "If Death Ever Slept," and it's exactly the kind of ripper Destruction Unit have proven to be so good at it -- ferocious, dark punk rock with genuinely trippy walls of sound. Listen below.

The band's previously announced tour hits NYC twice: June 26 at Palisades with Vanity and Shredded Nerve (tickets), and a free afternoon show at Union Pool (6/27) the next day with Pampers and Cheena, as part of the Summer Thunder series.

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