Now, this was unexpected. Sebadoh have announced a new album, Act Surprised, and released its first single, “Celebrate the Void.”
The song starts out woozy, but the lo-fi alt rockers take it up a notch halfway through with more energetic drumming and some chunky guitar riffs. “Empty, my my, celebrate the void,” frontman Lou Barlow sings.
Act Surprised is out May 24 on Dangerbird Records. “Celebrate the Void” also arrived with a distinctly home-made music video, albeit with some psychedelic editing touches. Check it out below:
