Hear Anamanaguchi’s staggering new single “Lorem Ipsum (Arctic Anthem)” Leia Jospe

This October, Anamanaguchi are set to return with their first album in five years. It's a project called [USA], and it's out October 25 via Polyvinyl. For now, the band is coming out guns blazing with the first track, a staggering cut called "Lorem Ipsum (Arctic Anthem) that launches the age-old placeholder text into intergalactic chaos.


“This song deals with environmental forces so immense as to be beyond our control, but not our ability to notice and grasp the effects they bear on us," guitarist Peter Berkman wrote in a press release. "There’s a lot more in the album about these unavoidable realities — conditions, names, identities, labels — that none of us chose, but have to learn to live with.”
