Today, they're sharing "Saltine State," which guitarist/keyboardist/percussionist Patrick Fahey told The FADER over email is "a stripped down, scuzzy tune about growing older, accumulating debt, and getting drunk in the woods with your friends." Listen to the song below, and check out their record release show at Allston, MA's Great Scott on August 11.
