You’ve read SPIN.com’s live review — but now you can finally sample the awesomeness that is the Thermals’ new album for yourself!

“Now We Can See,” the catchy title track off the band’s upcoming record (out April 7 via Kill Rock Stars), finds frontman Hutch Harris and Co. swapping their sometime angst-ridden punk fury for ’50s-style pop-rock — it’s like a slower, hip-twisting version of Ramones classic “Blitzkrieg Bop,” complete with sing-along Ohhh wayooo oh ewww ohhhhhhsss.

Download the track below. Then leave your thoughts in the comment section.
