meatpuppets Check Out: Meat Puppets   Damn Thing

Vintage alt rockers Meat Puppets are prepping the upcoming release of their latest studio album, Lollipop, their 13th in a long and very influential career. (FYI: Kurt Cobain was one of their biggest fans.) Recently, the Phoenix-born trio dropped the album’s first single, “Damn Thing” (via SlicingUpEyeballs). With the droning melancholic vocals of brothers and founding members Cris & Curt Kirkwood standing at the forefront of a simple, guitar-based melody, the track is unmistakably Meat Puppets. No wonder they’ve been around for years.

Lollipop is scheduled for release on April 12th via Megaforce Records. Peep the mp3 and tracklist below.

In other Meat Puppets-related news, the band is scheduled to make an appearance South By Southwest Festival, where they’ll play alongside Roky Erickson. After that, they’ll make their way to Europe for their first tour in almost 20 years. All confirmed dates can be found listed below.
