"Very well. The corpse is yours. Do what you want to do." So goes the line cribbed from 1959 B-movie The Brain That Wouldn't Die, once immortalized by Mystery Science Theater 3000 and now again by Long Island punks Iron Chic. The band trades in shout-along anthems and melodic shreddage, and they've got a funny way of expressing themselves. On "Sounds Like a Pretty Brutal Murder," streaming below, singer-guitarist Phil Douglas rails: "Things get weird! You just have to deal with it / Eat the heart, eat every little piece of it / Unwind! get high / Say fuck the world, and you're done with it!"

The slightly macabre and totally fist-pumping track hails from Iron Chic's forthcoming album The Constant One, available for pre-order via Bridge Nine.
