The long rumored title of the new Unknown Mortal Orchestra album has officially been announced today, and it is called Sex & Food and arrives on April 6th on Jagjaguar. But we all knew that already.
Frontman Ruban Nielson described the new album, “I wanted to embrace this abandoned genre of rock music that I keep reading is ‘dead’ and invite people to hear what this living dead genre sounds like in the UMO universe.”
The animated video released today for their first single “American Guilt” was directed by Greg Sharp, features a long panning shot of a garbage heap teeming with flies. This may be a statement on the consumer culture in America, and the disposable nature of that culture. It finally focuses on an extreme close up of a fly.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra hits the road in April on a 40 date International tour. You can check out all of the dates here.
