Ty Segall, Ex-Cult’s Chris Shaw and Charles Moothart of Fuzz have a new band called GØGGS which will be releasing their self-titled debut July 1. Today they’ve shared ferocious rocker “Needle Trade Off” which delves into punk and ’80s hardcore with much of the same energy its members are known for.

When Chris Shaw announced their first 7” single late last year, he explained how the band got together: “Ty and I decided we were going to start a band together when Ex-Cult opened for his band on the ‘Slaughterhouse’ tour in 2013. A couple years later when the plans were solidified, it only made sense that thrash master Charles Moothart should get in on the experience. The three of us have been friends for years at this point, crashing at each others houses and riffling through each others record collections after a night of performing, partying, or both. This is not a side-project, it is a necessity. GØGGS is three heads, one spine, circling the drain of the wasteland known as mother earth.”
