Protomartyr have announced a new album. On May 29 the Detroit post-punk band will release Ultimate Success Today via Domino. The first single is “Processed by the Boys.” Hear it below, and take a look at their upcoming summer tour dates

“The re-release of our first album had me thinking about the passage of time and its ultimate conclusion,” says the band’s vocalist Joe Casey in a press release. “Listening to No Passion All Technique again, I could hear myself hoping for an introduction and a long future, but also being cognizant that it could be ‘one and done’ for us. So, when it came time to write Ultimate Success Today, I was reminded of that first urgency and how it was an inverse of my current grapple with how terribly ill I’ve been feeling lately. Was that sick feeling coloring how I felt about the state of the world or was it the other way around?”

Ultimate Success Today follows 2017’s Relatives in Descent.
