Japanese punks Otoboke Beaver's new album ITEKOMA HITS comes out April 26 via Damnably (pre-order), and we're premiering a new song from the LP, "Don't Light My Fire." As we wrote previously, Otoboke Beaver have a truly wild sound that covers everything from bouncy indie pop to raging hardcore punk, and this song falls very much on the latter side. It's a fun, chaotic, and theatrical song that sounds like a cheerleader chant one minute, and Bad Brains the next. It rips, and you really don't hear stuff like this everyday. Listen below.

Otoboke Beaver are coming to the US for SXSW, and they also have UK shows in April and May with Say Sue Me and Drinking Boys and Girls Choir. All dates are listed below.
