As part of label home Sacred Bones' forthcoming Record Store Day comp, Todo Muere Volume 2 (the very same mentioned in our brief Skype interview with Danish labelmates War in February), the Men have shared "A Minor," a previously unreleased, eight-minute epic that's every bit as psychedelic and stormy as the many wailers that fill the Brooklyn outfit's most recently released (and SPIN Essential'd) full-length, Open Your Heart. It's due April 21, roughly a month before they head out on a slew of freshly announced North American tour dates. Hear the song (via Pitchfork!) and check a full list of shows below.
