Australian alt-rock greats Hoodoo Gurus are working on their first album in 10 years. While details on that are still forthcoming, they've just released new single "World of Pain," a horn-fueled, garage-psych stomper in the Gurus tradition.

Says frontman Dave Faulkner, "'World Of Pain' details the misadventures of a night on the town, beginning with a drunken altercation with another punter (“Your fist smashes my face/Chairs fly all over the place/What a sorry sight”) and concludes with our hapless narrator waking up in bed fully dressed, in the throes of a hangover, all the while trying to remember where he last saw his cellphone. That’s a world of pain indeed. Mind you, this is a fictional story, you understand.”

You can watch the video for "World of Pain" below.

Hoodoo Gurus will be on tour in North America this fall (rescheduled from last year), their first shows here in a decade, including dates at L.A.'s The Roxy on September 14 and NYC's Webster Hall on October 1.
