Following one of the more dynamic performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!Flatbush Zombies are back this week with a new song. Titled “Aries”, the track is highlighted by thwacking percussion and blunt, socially conscious lyrics that cut deep given our nation’s post-election turmoil.

“Emancipation, castration, mass-hating, white washing/ Black shaving patience, that I’m demonstrating, ugh,” the CoSigned hip-hop collective lament. “Segregation, separation, take my people, chain my people/ Ship them out, build a nation, picket lines, demonstration/ Kill switch, detonation, this takes dedication.” The song also features contributions from British band and Pete Doherty affiliates Deadcuts.

Check it out below.

“Aries” marks the first release since Flatbush Zombies’ debut album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey, which hit shelves back in March.
