White Lung Share ‘Kiss Me When I Bleed,’ Announce Tour Dates

'Paradise' arrives on May 6 via Domino

White Lung will soon unleash their fiery new record, Paradise, from which they’ve already shared lead single “Hungry.” Now Mish Way & Co. have unveiled the record’s next single, an urgent, rather graphic-sounding cut called “Kiss Me When I Bleed.” (We say “graphic” because it’s got lyrics like “I will give birth in a trailer / Huffing the gas in the air / Baby is born in molasses / Like I would even care.”)

“‘Kiss Me When I Bleed’ is about pride,” Way said in a statement. “That kind of steadfast, I-don’t-give-a-f**k-I’m-in-love pride in that we all wish we had for someone. This song is my fairytale. Riches to rags and happily ever after because nothing else in this world really matters except love.”

Listen below, check out the band’s just-announced tour dates, and look for Paradise on May 6 via Domino.
