OFF! share new single ‘War Above Los Angeles’, detail new album and North American tour

'Free LSD’ will be out in September, with a sprawling run of tour dates to follow

Hardcore punk supergroup OFF! – which features ex-members of Black Flag and Burning Brides – have announced their long-awaited third album, ‘Free LSD’, with the first single ready to stream right now.

Titled ‘War Above Los Angeles’, the new single carries a wild science-fiction narrative, and arrives with a music video written and directed by guitarist Dimitri Coats. According to a description for the clip, the narrative footage in it comes from an upcoming feature film, also titled Free LSD, which is set for release in 2023.

‘Free LSD’ will be released on September 30 via Fat Possum, and mark the band’s first full-length offering since 2014’s ‘Wasted Years’ album. In a press release, Coats said the album would serve as a soundtrack for its cinematic counterpart, with both the album and film “go[ing] hand in hand as an overall art project”. He explained: “Thinking of the album as a soundtrack to a weird sci-fi movie gave us permission to experiment.”

Frontman Keith Morris was more colourful in his statement, saying of his ambitions for the album: “After making music for as long as I have, it was time to use a palette that includes lime green, turquoise, and magenta instead of the typical colors and shades that were involved in all of the other breakneck and car chase scenarios. Miles Davis with Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters as opposed to [Descendents’] ‘Milo Goes To College’.”
