Brooklyn-based punk band Cerebral Ballzy have released a new track titled “Speed Wobbles.” The track is the b-side to “Better In Leather” from their forthcoming album Jaded & Faded and is available for free download here. The band will be selling physical copies of a limited cassette and 7″ featuring “Better In Leather” and “Speed Wobbles” at their North American tour dates later this spring. Cerebral Ballzy will be playing shows OFF! and performing at the SXSW and Spillover Music Festivals. All upcoming shows are listed below.
Cerebral Ballzy announced in the fall that they had signed to Cult Records. The label’s owner, Julian Casablancas, says Cerebral Ballzy are “probably the coolest band in the world at the moment, a truly legit modern hardcore/punk band, and by far my favorite. It’s beyond exciting to try and help them in any and all ways we can and we’re honored to put their deliriously great new record out on Cult Records.” The band’s new album, produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek will be out this year, with more details to follow.
Cerebral Ballzy’s album is highly anticipated after the band’s new track “Better In Leather” premiered as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1 and the track is streaming at Soundcloud:
This is the second time the band have received Hottest Record In The World. The first time was for their track “Be Your Toy,” before the band played the Reading/Leeds festival earlier this year. “Better In Leather” and “Be Your Toy” will both be included on Cerebral Ballzy’s sophomore effort, Jaded & Faded.
