Their new album arrives later this month.

Noise rockers Lightning Bolt have shared a new track, ‘Hüsker Dön’t’.

On it, the duo of Brian Gibson and Brian Chippendale get personal in a sweet but sad way as Chippendale sings to his son about moving on after his inevitable death, or in his words, “[taking] the van alone to the other side”. “The lyrics are a sort of letter from beyond the grave to my son,” Chippendale says. “I thought it would be a cool thing for him to discover later on. An Easter egg. Just a love letter.”

‘Hüsker Dön’t’ is a preview of Lightning Bolt’s new album, Sonic Citadel, scheduled to come out on October 11 via Thrill Jockey. It follows their 2015 album Fantasy Empire. The duo will head out on tour following its release with dates in the United States and Europe. Find those dates below.
