Mudhoney have announced a new album, Digital Garbage. It’s due out September 28th on Sub Pop. Check out the new song, “Paranoid Core,” below. “My sense of humor is dark, and these are dark times,” voalist Mark Arm said in a statement. “I suppose it’s only getting darker.”

The band will play shows throughout the summer and fall, including a stop at Sub Pop’s 30th anniversary celebration in Seattle. Find tickets here.

Mudhoney’s latest album, Vanishing Point, arrived in 2013. Earlier this year, they released the live album LiE.

A press release describes Digital Garbage as an album that attempts to navigate the anxieties of modern life. The song titles hint heavily at this. There’s a track called “Please Mr. Gunman” and “Kill Yourself Live” is described as a commentary on some of social media’s pitfalls. “I’m not on social media, so my experience is somewhat limited,” says Mark Arm. “But people really seem to find validation in the likes—and then there’s Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop.”
