HEALTH's new album Death Magic is out now on Loma Vista. It's the band's first proper studio album since 2009's Get Color and their most accessible one yet. I wouldn't say they "went pop," as the noise elements are still way too prevalent for this to be actual pop, but this thing is packed with could-be hits for an alternate (much weirder) universe. Check out two videos and an audio stream of a third track from the record below.

HEALTH played an intimate NYC show back in the spring, and they'll support it on a proper tour this fall. That tour brings them back to NYC on November 21 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and November 22 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday (8/21) at noon, and tickets for LPR go on sale Friday too.

All dates are listed below...
