After taking the US by storm earlier this year, including several SXSW shows, Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have today announced they will be returning to North America this fall. Their new album, And Now For The Whatchamacallit, is out this Friday on Marathon Artists. The album, a culmination of experiences lived on the road and influences stemming from the last few years of evolution and refinement for the band, is finally unveiled in all its glory – a testament to thePsychedelic Porn Crumpets’ unrelenting vivacious attitude and hungry approach to powerful music.

Also out today is another impressive cut from the album titled “Hymn For A Droid”. The track is explosive and exciting and show a band poised to take their sound to dizzying heights. Of the track, frontman Jack McEwan says “This track reminds me of a Rhino at full charge, I was absolutely cranking it while recording. Pretty sure my housemates didn’t get a lot of sleep the week this was bring crafted. The lyrics were based on the end of a relationship, those months you’re questioning where your life will end up and if you’re making the right decisions. You’re almost robotic, ticking along like a drone that repeats the same lines over & over in your head, and then you go out with your mates for the first time in ages, take a bunch of thought juice and everything makes way more sense. I wanted the chorus to come out of nowhere like an instant realisation, confusing at first & then the next time you hear it all becomes way clearer.” Listen here
