Ex-Cult kick off a slew of live shows next week, and the Memphis punks will be bringing a brand new 7-inch along for the ride. On July 26, the Chris Shaw-led crew will follow their 2012 self-titled debut with the "Mister Fantasy"/"Through the Blinds" vinyl. Recorded by Doug Easley (Oblivians, Cat Power, Guided by Voices), the disc's A-side proffers frothing-at-the-mouth fury and warped, pinballing melodies. Stream it below, followed by tour dates.
