Back in December, SPIN debuted Cerebral Ballzy’s grimy music video for “Better in Leather,” a snotty, snarling salvo from the Brooklyn band’s upcoming sophomore album. While we know that set is produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, titled Jaded & Faded, and due out sometime this year via Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records, the final details are still forthcoming. Thankfully, Ballzy have just unleashed a brand new song that serves as the B-side to “Better.” “Speed Wobbles” is a minute-long assault that relies on the same kinds of no-nonsense, scorched-earth tactics employed by OFF!. Fitting then that Cerebral Ballzy are playing a string of shows with Keith Morris’ hardcore outfit this spring. Stream “Speed Wobbles” below, and scroll further down for tour dates.
