Today, genre-defying innovators mewithoutYou have shared another new track from their upcoming seventh full-length [Untitled] which arrives October 5th via Big Scary Monsters. “Another Head For Hydra” nods to the band’s post-hardcore roots with a driving backbeat and off kilter riffs that blend seamlessly with frontman Aaron Weiss’ acrobatic vocals. The track follows the release of [untitled] e.p., a companion piece to [Untitled] that mewithoutYou surprise released last month.
Since their formation in 2001, mewithoutYou have never stopped pushing themselves into new sonic territory. Across six full-length albums and a handful of EPs, the Philadelphia band—who have been labeled everything from experimental punk, to post-hardcore, to indie rock—have always put a premium on progression, never anchoring themselves to a single sound and instead gracefully wandering across stylistic lines. It’s that same spirit that informs the connected releases of [untitled] e.p. and [Untitled].
