Prog-thrash greats Voivod are releasing a new EP called Post Society on February 26 via Century Media (pre-order), their first release with current bassist Rocky. It features "We Are Connected" off their split with At the Gates, "Forever Mountain" off their split with Napalm Death, and the EP's brand new title track. It's the kind of eccentric song that Voivod are built to pull off, heavy, psychedelic and alien-sounding. Listen below.

The EP also honors Lemmy with a cover of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine," and if there's a metal band who might actually be more fit to take on Hawkwind than Motorhead, it's Voivod. Stay tuned for that one.

Voivod are hitting the road soon with Vektor and Eight Bells. The tour stops in NYC on February 7 at Gramercy Theatre, also with Extinction AD. Tickets for that show are still available.
