Sebadoh, one of the most beloved indie rock bands of all time, have a new album, Act Surprised, out on May 24. It’ll be their first since 2013’s Defend Yourself and only their second since The Sebadoh all-but tore them apart two decades ago.


The first single from the record, “celebrate the void,” was a combustible shout-along, and now they’re back with another song, “Stunned,” the video for which is premiering below. It’s a scuzzy, paranoid-sounding song, underpinned by Jason Loewenstein's weary snarl: “Don’t you creep around me.”

"The incessant bombardment of the senses with media and advertising can lead to a kind of self defensive paralysis,” Loewenstein wrote in an appropriately brisk statement to The FADER this morning. “I am completely stunned at this point."


Watch the psychedelically lo-fi video for “Stunned” below and take a look at the band’s upcoming tour dates at the foot of the page. Act Surprised is out via Dangerbird Records on May 24.
