No. 2 (ex-Heatmiser) return with first new song in 18 years (watch the video)
Back in 1996 after Heatmiser broke up, Elliott Smith went solo, Sam Coomes turned his attention to Quasi, and Neil Gust went on to front No. 2, which also featured Gilly Ann Hanner (Calamity Jane) and Paul Pulvirenti (Atomic 61, and more recently of Eyelids). They released two albums -- 1999's No Memory and 2002's What does Good Luck Bring? (both of which featured Sam Coomes and Elliott Smith) -- before breaking up in 2003, but they reunited at Neil's surprise birthday party in 2018 and now they're set to release their first new music in 18 years, the "You Might Be Right" b/w "French Exit" single, on June 12 via Jealous Butcher Records. It was produced by Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks bassist Joanna Bolme and recorded by The Cribs' bassist/vocalist Gary Jarman, and it serves as a precursor to the band's new album, which will be out in spring 2021.
A-side "You Might Be Right" is out today, and it's a ripper that finds the band in fine form, sounding like no time at all has passed since the '90s. We're premiering its video, which features the band performing, and they still look as cool as they sound. Check it out below.
