Following the release of "Paddling" and "Narrator," Brighton, UK band Squid have unveiled yet another new single, "Pamphlets," off their forthcoming debut album, Bright Green Field (due May 7 via Warp Records).

Squid aren't afraid to toy with expectation, though "Pamphlets" seems to draw back toward their abrasive, guitar-led roots and propensity for moments of intense instrumentation. As a result, this, the closing track on their upcoming record, ends things with a bang, propelling forward with breakneck drumbeats and hypnotic swirling synths. It's eight minutes of controlled chaos, combining perfectly the sound that Squid fans have come to know and love with their newer inclinations.

"Pale bricks and wide smiles / That's why I don't go outside," drummer Olly Judge yelps, relaying the paranoid sort of reclusion that may result when the world around you appears too horrific to bear. “It’s about all the rubbish right-wing propaganda you get through your front door," Olly says. "It imagines a person with that as their only source of news being taken over by these pamphlets.”

While the track's lyrical material is sadly quite morbid, noting the reality of its message, "Pamphlets" practically begs to be performed live, which is fitting as the band have also just announced their first US tour. Stops include which kicks off November 9 in Philly and includes stops in NYC (11/10 at Mercury Lounge), Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles (11/17 at Moroccan Lounge), Santa Ana, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. Tickets for all dates of the tour go on sale Friday, April 30 at noon local.
