Named after a Melvins song (the lead cut off 1987’s Gluey Porch Treatments) and featuring members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac, ferocious noise-rock crew Eye Flys made waves with 2019 debut EP, Context. Now, they’re back with its full-length follow-up, the even denser and more abrasive Tub of Lard, which is due out March 20th via Thrill Jockey Records. Ahead of the big release date, the quartet — singer-guitarist Jake Smith, guitarist Spencer Hazard, bassist Kevin Bernstein and drummer Patrick Forrest — have dropped new song “Guillotine,” a no-holds-barred rager aimed squarely at the world’s one-percenters.

Smith says of the single, “Whether you’re an anti-capitalist or not — I am — I think it should be pretty well understood that poverty and wealth inequalities are directly connected to the disgusting and unethical hoarding of wealth by the one-percent. A crime so damaging to millions of lives, that I do in fact think we would be better off without these folks.” Stream it — and check out the band’s upcoming itinerary — below.
