Deap Vally teased their return late last year with the release of their feral single “Royal Jelly”. Now, the Los Angeles garage blues duo have officially announced that their sophomore album, FEMEJISM, will drop September 16th via Nevado Music.

The follow-up to their 2013 debut, Sistrionixthis new record was produced by Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. As another early listen, the band has shared the video for “Smile More”. Described as a “fuck you anthem,” the sing-talk grinder sounds like the head of an axe being dragged through the dirt, dangerous and empowering. With her shiftless snarl, frontwoman Lindsey Troy rejects the idea of being someone else’s “reflection” or taking their “direction.” “I am not ashamed of my mental state/ And I am not ashamed of my body weight,” she sings. “And I am not ashamed of my rage/ And I am not ashamed of my age.”

The track is accompanied by a video that sees a young, emotionally lost girl walking through the streets of LA. She tries to find solace in a church and a drag show before finding comfort in a street gig from the Deap Vally girls. Check it out above.

Below, find the FEMEJISM album artwork and tracklist, followed by Deap Vally’s upcoming tour dates, including opening spots for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Death From Above 1979.
