    Semi Precious Weapons have revealed a brand new song titled "Brando."

    It is the debut single from their upcoming new full-length studio album to be released later this fall. They just released an album in April and they are breaking ALL of the rules by dropping another in the same calendar year.

    The as-yet untitled surprise new album will live on the band's second full-length release this year and follow-up to Aviation, released in April. The upcoming album was written, recorded and produced entirely by the band at their home studio in Los Angeles, with Tricky Stewart serving as executive producer.

    Okay, listen to "Brando."



    "We decided to release a brand new single and album so quickly because we were inspired by the 'Golden Age of Rock and Roll' - a time when artists were releasing multiple albums a year," said singer Justin Tranter. "There was a period in his career when Elton John put out six albums in two and a half years. We have songs that we love, songs that we just wrote, and we don't want to wait to share them. Both sonically and emotionally, this is who we are right now. We are fortunate to be at a label that is cool enough to support us putting this out right now. The rules of an 'album cycle' as set by the record industry don't work for people who really love music anymore, so why follow them."

    Amen to that! Fuck the rules.

    Did you dig "Brando?"
