Toronto sludge punks HSY put out the "Cyber Bully" b/w "Phantasm Blast" single earlier this year, and they've recently finished their debut LP which will come out at some point via Buzz Records. Ahead of that, they've filmed a high quality live video of one of the new songs, "Acid Peel" (dir. Chris Chami), a terrifically dark track with driving Psychocandy-style drums, murky distorted guitars, and vocals that go from a goth baritone to deathly screams. The video premieres in this post and can be watched below.

As discussed, they'll be touring with fellow Toronto band/Buzz labelmates The Beverleys, and that tour hits NYC for the Buzz CMJ showcase on Thursday (10/23) at Shea Stadium with Weaves, Vulture Shit, Mexican Slang and Muuy Biien ($5 at the door).

Speaking of, Weaves recently dropped a new track too. Stream that, with the new HSY video and list of tour dates, below...
