Hear a Bangin’ Tune from Eureka California’s Upcoming Album

Local rock duo Eureka California is gearing up to release Versus, the band’s third LP, on Mar. 25 via local label HHBTM Records. Recently, they dropped the album’s first single, the fierce, fuzzed-out “Sign My Name With an X.” You can stream the track below:

Eureka California recorded Versus in Leeds, UK with producer MJ of British noise-rockers Hookworms. (The band chronicled the trip for Flagpole last year.) It’s the group’s first full-length tracked in a proper studio, and the increase in fidelity from 2014’s Crunch is immediately obvious.

Catch the band live on Mar. 25, when it celebrates the release of Versus at Little Kings Shuffle Club.
