New Toadies MP3: "No Deliverance"

Critical Mass
Label:

by Larry Fitzmaurice

Since Toadies frontman Vaden Todd Lewis spilled the beans to SPIN.com on the '90s alt-rock act's much-anticipated new record, No Deliverance (out Aug. 19), their fervent fan base -- including us here at Spin HQ -- have been anxiously awaiting a sneak peek of the long overdue set. Well, wait no more fans, it's finally here; Lay your ears on "No Deliverance," the first album leak heard outside the studio walls.

With bluesy bass figures, Lewis' fuzzed-over, creaky voice, and a noisy, guitar-laden shout-along chorus, the tune surely rocks, but don't expect a recreation of the Toadies' 1994 smash, "Possum Kingdom." Here, the band swap the aforementioned hit's tuneful, melodic heights for grinding guitars and driving, hard rock renderings. Nevertheless, the fact that these guys can reunite and crank out strong material that's just as relevant now as it was then is a solid testament to their craft.
