Chapel Hill punk rockers Spider Bags have signed to Merge Records for the release of their fourth studio album, Frozen Letter, due out August 5th. The follow-up to 2012’s Shake My Head features eight tracks, recorded in just three days by engineer/producer Wesley Wolfe. In addition to signing the band’s paychecks, Merge co-founder and Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan guests on lead guitar.
For our first taste, the band’s unveiled lead single/album opener “Back With You Again in the World”. Aided by surging, buzzsaw guitars and frontman Dan McGee’s burly drawl, the song is ripping garage rocker. Listen in below.
