Here’s a Trippy New New Madrid Video

Athens rock foursome New Madrid are prepping a new full-length, magnetkingmagnetqueen, which’ll drop Apr. 29 via local imprint Normaltown Records. The follow-up to 2014’s Sunswimmer looks to expand on that record’s subtle psychedelic edge, and new song “Knots” hammers the point home with effects-laden guitar work and a spaced-out vocal delivery from singer Phil McGill. 

Plus, the video is pretty trippy:

New Madrid previously released a video for another tune off magnetkingmagnetqueen, “Don’t Hold Me Now,” which you can check out below:
