You may know John Davis as one half of Folk Implosion (Lou Barlow being the other half). He left the group (and music in a public way) in 2000, not reemerging till 2015 with Spare Parts. He's gearing up for a new record, El Pulpo, which was inspired by Raj Patel's book Stuffed and Starved, as well as similar texts on corporate greed, Big Agriculture, the stock market, and other pressing issues. While the record doesn't have a release date, we've got the premiere of the album's lead single, the calamitous, highly rhythmic "Stock Up All the Prisons," which you can listen to below.

John Davis will be touring in April where he'll be backed by The Cicadas who at these shows are Rob Chamberlain on drums, and Justin Blatt on viola & bass. Dates include a stop at Brooklyn's Union Hall on April 13 with Marble Fawn, and Low-Ways. Tickets are on sale.

UPDATE: The show has been cancelled after a fire at Union Hall. It is being moved, location TBA.
