OFF!, the quartet of Keith Morris (Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats, Justin Brown (Thundercat) and Autry Fulbright II (…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead), have just shared a new video/single “Kill To Be Heard,” the second proper taste of their first new full-length in eight years, Free LSD (out 30th September from Fat Possum). The video draws its stunning footage from the forthcoming Free LSD feature film (the making of which was detailed last month in an expansive behind-the-scenes feature in SPIN), that also yielded the video for previous single “War Above Los Angeles” which arrived in conjunction with the album’s announcement last month. “Kill To Be Heard” features appearances from D.H. Peligro (Dead Kennedys), Don Bolles (Germs), David Yow (Jesus Lizard), Davey Havok (AFI), Chloe Dykstra, Chris D. (Flesh Eaters), Chelsea Debo, and more.

The 2 minute furnace blast of “Kill To Be Heard” is a poignant demonstration that the addition of new members Brown and Fulbright has imbibed the band’s signature high-anxiety hardcore volatility with a new swing, pushing the concept of punk into another dimension. Speaking on the song’s themes, Morris asks “When will we everyday good Josephines and Josephs be free from homegrown terrorists and the rest of our population that has absolutely no knowledge or bought into the ‘White-washed’ history of our country? There were amazing human beings here before us……….” The new lineup is set to bring the experimental flair of the Free LSD album experience to the live arena during a full US tour that kicks off in October (see full dates below).
