Detroit proto-punk band Death has been seeing an unexpected resurgence of late, largely thanks to reissue of 1975 record For the Whole World To See, as well as the acclaimed documentary, A Band Called Death. But the group is not only back performing, but actually have some newly unearthed material to share with listeners. That set of newly liberated material is called Death III, and it’s being released April 22 via Drag City.
Death III contains tracks written between 1975 and 1980, as well as two songs that date back to as recently as 1992. One 1980-era track, “North Street,” has been premiered on NPR, where you can stream it right now. Check out the tracklist and artwork below.
