manastromancover Listen to Man or Astro Man?s crushing new single, Communication Breakdown Pt. II

Sci-fi rockers Man or Astro-Man? will return later this month with their first album in 12 years, Defcon…5…4…3…2…1. The band of misfits has already unveiled the propulsive lead single, “Disintegrate”, and today they’ve let loose another slice of their patented “Science Friction” sound with “Communication Breakdown Pt. II”.

With its warble-y guitars, scratchy bassline, and concussive drums, the track creates a sense of inter-dimensional movement, as if we’re aboard some psychedelic spaceship cruising through a reverb-heavy tear in the space-time continuum. By the time the journey abruptly ends on a madcap refrain, it’s uncertain if we’ve made it through the wormhole in one piece, or if the sweltering groove has crushed us into infinitely-dense bits. Strap in, and take a listen below.

Defcon…5…4…3…2…1 hits stores on May 21st via Communicating Vessels/Chunklet. The band is currently on tour in support of the LP, and you can consult their full schedule following the album tracklist.
