Black Moth Super Rainbow are releasing a new album, Panic Blooms, on May 4 via Rad Cult. Previously they shared its first single, “Mr. No One.” Now they have shared another song from the album, “Backwash,” via a video. The song will also be released on Record Store Day (April 21), with the B-side being a cover of the band’s “Drippy Eye” by Mike Watt and Flea. Allen Cordell directed the strange “Backwash” video. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Panic Blooms is the band’s first album in six years, since 2012’s Cobra Juicy. “Mr. No One” will also be released as a 7-inch single on Record Store Day, with the B-side being two collaborative tracks between Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman TOBACCO (aka Tom Fec) and Ariel Pink, “Willing & Able” and “Bogalusa.”

A previous press release described the album as such: “Panic Blooms is slightly startling. Never before has TOBACCO been so raw or direct in his lyrics. It’s a f-ed up and bleeding account of depression and the shadow side of human frailty, full of gorgeous warped melodies that exist as their own genre, somewhere between late ‘90s Warp Records, dub, and chopped and screwed codeine drip. It’s not drug music, it’s dragged music, oozing through the muck of the present moment, past mutating the present, demon melodies filtered through the vain search for light.”
