Whoa! You put your head down for FIVE SECONDS and The Klaxons release their first song in three years while you're napping. I guess that is how the internet is, always be surprising us with bands who have been out of the limelight for years. Anyway, hear "Flashover" right after you jump.
As many Klaxons fans know, their sophomore album (first mentioned in 2007) was rejected by their label for being too "experimental". This is the first track we're hearing from their next release, after a few tracks have premiered here and there in the band's live set. It's been three years since Myths Of The Near Future. For those of us who were absolutely obsessed with it, this is a GREAT NEWSDAY. Enjoy.
According to Pitchfork, the track was produced by Ross Robinson (Korn, Limp Bizkit, At The Drive In, Blood Brothers), the dude brought in to help the rerecording process. You can hear the aggressive scratchiness, a bit heavier than the band's previous work. More details will most likely surface during festival season. Until then, catch them on tour to hear more. -joe puglisi
