thee oh sees a weird exits

Thee Oh Sees' new album, A Weird Exits, is out August 12 via Castle Face and is the first record they've made with the current two-drummer lineup. That definitely changes the dynamic here, with a couple tracks heading into Can territory, with keyboards entering the picture occasionally. Like most Oh Sees records, A Weird Exits spends a lot time in manic freakout mode, and the constant drum fills make it all freakier. There are pretty moments too, especially at the LP's tail end ("Crawl Out from the Fall Out," "The Axis"). You can stream the whole album, via Spin, below.

As mentioned, Thee Oh Sees will be touring this fall with two NYC shows — Bowery Ballroom on November 11 (sold out) and Warsaw on November 13 with Straight Arrows and Acid Dad (tickets). Updated tour dates are listed below.
