Thee Oh Sees Share Chunky New Track, ‘Fortress’

Thee Oh Sees have a new single out called “Fortress,” a stocky garage track that’s set to appear on a forthcoming 7-inch, coming February 12 via lead singer John Dwyer’s label, Castle Face. The mostly instrumental cut was also recorded in the same sessions as Thee Oh Sees’ 2015 LP, Mutilator Defeated at Last, and the San Francisco band will release a new record in spring of next year.

The band has also announced a couple of show dates at the Teragram Ballroom in L.A. on December 16-17, with Fuzz, Wand, and Permanent Records DJs opening. Proceeds will benefit L.A. Kitchen, which helps the homeless community. Here’s what Dwyer said in a statement:

We used to do these kinds of events in San Francisco every year, homelessness is really pretty extreme there. But here in Los Angeles, it seems more dire still. This is the first city where I’ve seen homeless children on the street. It’s pretty rough out there and every day the divide seems to grow between money and people without. So, any way we can help out seems like a good thing and everybody involved in the event just sort pulled it all together.
