Two years after their long-awaited return with How Did I Find Myself Here?, American band The Dream Syndacate announced the release of a new album. These Times is out on May 3rd via ANTI- Records. It was co-produced by John Agnello (Phosphorescent, Waxahatchee, Hold Steady, Dinosaur Jr.). They shared the first excerpt “Put Some Miles On“. Watch the official video directed by David Dalglish.

“This is our third video directed by David Dalglish, a Scotsman who is gradually becoming the official visual interpreter of our music,” Steve Wynn explains. “And I love the way he captured the triple meaning of ‘Put Some Miles On’ —actual road miles logged, the ensuing experience and wisdom of the turning of the calendar pages and, of course, our love of Miles Davis himself. It’s truly a zig zag marathon!”

“These Times. That’s it. It is all we’re talking about, all we’re thinking about. There is no avoiding the existential panic of a world that’s hurtling somewhere quickly, evolving, and shifting course by the hour.  It seems like a lie to not address or reflect the things that we can’t stop thinking about—the whole world’s watching indeed. The lyrics are just a mirror of the dread, panic, mania, speculation, melancholy and ultimately shrugging abandonment that just might follow. It’s just all about where we are.”
