Neon Neon are currently streaming their forthcoming new album online.

Visit The Guardian to listen to 'Praxis Makes Perfect' ahead of its official release.

The band helmed by Super Furry Animals singer Gruff Rhys and producer Boom Bip will release their second LP on April 29 via Lex Records.

Scroll down to listen to 'Mid Century Modern Nightmare', which was the first track to be released from the record.

Where Neon Neon's Mercury-shortlisted first album, 2008's 'Stainless Style', was based on the life of DeLorean Motor Company founder John DeLorean, 'Praxis Makes Perfect' is inspired by the life and times of activist and publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli.

Born into one of Italy's wealthiest families, Feltrinelli was a left-wing political activist who published some of the greatest literary works of the 20th century, including 'Doctor Zhivago' and Henry Miller's controversial 'Tropic Of Cancer'.

He died in suspicious circumstances in 1972, found at the foot of a high-voltage power line pylon near Milan, apparently killed by his own explosives while on an operation with member of the GAP military group he founded.

'Praxis Makes Perfect' features a number of guests including Sabrina Salerno, Asia Argento, Cate Le Bon and Josh Klinghoffer.

Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip have also teamed up with playwright Tim Price, director Wils Wilson and National Theatre Wales to create unique Neon Neon live performances. An initial run of shows will take place at an undisclosed Cardiff location from May 2-5. Neon Neon will also play London's Village Underground from June 4-6.

Neon Neon play:

Cardiff Secret Location (May 2, 3, 4, 5)
London Village Underground (June 4, 5, 6)
