Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s followup to their 2015 LP Multi-Love is coming soon. The New-Zealand-born group’s fourth album, Sex & Food, will be out on April 6. Bandleader Ruban Nielson described the impetus behind the album in a statement, saying he wanted to “wanted to embrace this abandoned genre of rock music that I keep reading is ‘dead’ and invite people to hear what this living dead genre sounds like in the UMO universe.”

Their recent single “American Guilt” follows suit: It’s an overdriven, snarling rock’n’roll outing. The band has just released a video for the track, directed and animated by Greg Sharp, features panning shots over distasteful garbage piles, before finally, in a somewhat tender moment, focusing in on the visage of a fly. UMO also recently announced an upcoming international tour. See the tracklist and cover art for Sex & Food and watch the “American Guilt” video below.
