Oh Sees

Thee Oh Sees will release a new single, "Fortress," on February 12 via frontman John Dwyer's Castle Face label. "Fortress" came from the same sessions as this year's Mutilator Defeated at Last and is one of the band's more rhythm-heavy tracks. Check it out below.

The band are also playing two nights this week at Los Angeles' Teragram Ballroom (12/16 & 12/17) with Fuzz and Wand opening. The shows benefit L.A. Kitchen which helps the city's homeless. Says Dwyer:

We used to do these kinds of events in San Francisco every year, homelessness is really pretty extreme there. But here in Los Angeles, it seems more dire still. This is the first city where I've seen homeless children on the street. It's pretty rough out there and every day the divide seems to grow between money and people without. So, any way we can help out seems like a good thing and everybody involved in the event just sort pulled it all together.

In the new year, Thee Oh Sees will be touring Australia. All dates are listed below.
