Speedy Ortiz have already shared two singles from their upcoming full-length debut — the angst-ridden "Tiger Tank" and languid "No Below" — and now, the Best New Artist alums have offered a third. "Plough" plays on the Northampton foursome's strengths: The spastic tune packs in frayed guitar melodies, a gut-wrecking assault from the rhythm section, and nimble vocals courtesy lead singer Sadie Dupuis, who repeatedly spits, "You picked a virgin over me." Hear it over at Stereogum.

Major Arcana arrives on July 9 via Carpark Records. Speedy Ortiz will hit the road in support of the LP, touring the U.S. throughout July and August. Find dates below.
