The black & white video for “Never Coming Back” partly plays like a horror movie. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art. The band have also announced some tour dates, which are below too.

Pinned is the band’s fifth album. A press release points out that it’s also the band’s first since both the 2016 U.S. election and the 2014 closing of the band’s Brooklyn DIY space Death By Audio, where founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackerman also lived. This is also the first album to feature new drummer Lia Simone Braswell (the band also features bassist Dion Lunadon).

Ackerman had this to say about the album and the band changes in a press release: “As things go on, you don’t want them to be stagnant. Being a band for ten years, it’s hard to keep things moving forward. I see so many bands that have been around and they’re a weaker version of what they used to be. This band is anti-that. We try to push ourselves constantly, with the live shows and the recordings. We always want to get better. You’ve got to dig deep and take chances, and sometimes, I questioned that. It took really breaking through to make it work. I think we did that.”

Of “Never Coming Back,” Ackermann had this to say: “That song is a big concept. You make these decisions in your life…you’re contemplating whether or not this will be the end. You think of your mortality, those moments you could die and what that means. You’re thinking about that edge of the end, deciding whether or not it’s over. When you’re close to that edge, you could teeter over.”
