The 5-track EP A Fine Mess is scheduled to be released on May 17 via Matador Records. the band also released “The Weekend,” the noisy second track to come from the EP following the title track, which was released at the beginning of the year.

The EP is described in a press statement as “a living, breathing postcard from the band to their fans as they tour the world throughout 2019, and a linear continuation of the visceral and contagious energy set loose with Marauder.”
