Noise rock legends Unsane have released a new track from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Sterilize, which is due out on September 29 via Southern Lord. The new track, titled “Aberration”, is true blue Unsane with its gritty, metallic sound. The band said of the track:
“‘Aberration’ is classic Unsane, raw and direct, it only took a couple of takes to lock it down. It’s essentially a ditty about the swirling thoughts that go through your head after being screwed over. I’m sure anyone can appropriate or relate it to their personal experiences.”
