Sons of An Illustrious Father are a trio comprised of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and Ezra Miller. Film fans might recognize Miller’s name. He played Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in last fall’s Justice League movie (as well as more briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad). Miller also starred in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, We Need to Talk About Kevin, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But Sons of An Illustrious Father is no casual side-project for Miller, he’s known Larson since high school and the band has been active for several years. Now they have announced their new album, Deus Sex Machina: Or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla, which is due out June 1. They have also shared a new song from it, “When Things Fall Apart.” Listen to the song below. Also below is the album’s tracklist and the band’s upcoming tour dates. The album includes the previously released singles “Extraordinary Rendition” and “US Gay,” which are also below.

A press release describes the dad as such: “Sons of An Illustrious Father were born from an inherent need to represent Otherness within personal identity, continuing the astounding lineage of punk rock icons before them who pushed the boundaries of popular culture via explorations of gender definition and sexual fluidity. Theirs is a sound that leans back towards the outsiderdom and recklessness in music that paved the way for the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, X-Ray Spex, Bikini Kill, and so many more.”
