Fuzz, the trio of Ty Segall, Charles Moothart and Chad Ubovich, have announced the details of new album III, their first in five years. It’s coming out on October 23 via In The Red Records, and they’ve also shared album opener “Returning”.
The new single immediately reacquaints us with Fuzz’s kaleidoscopic and staggering brand of garage-meets-psych-rock. The riffs seem to pile up, curling around like a sonic boa constrictor, before easing back a little for Segall’s vocals to take centre stage. But not for too long – just when you’ve relaxed, “Returning” lurches back into full-throttle, Segall’s voice reaches banshee levels, and you find yourself neck-deep in crackling guitar and bass once again. A pure thrill.
They’ve also got a whole host of live dates coming up:
