Ty Segall Announces New Album First Taste, Releases “Taste”
The ever prolific Ty Segall has a new album, First Taste, coming out on August 2. Segall has released the lead single from the forthcoming album, aptly titled “Taste.” The song comes complete with a video directed by Josh Erkman, which features Segall embarking on a bloody killing spree, mowing down collaborators Mikal Cronin and Charles Moothart, aka two key players in Segall’s Freedom Band. “All members of the Freedom Band were murdered during the making of this video,” reads a chyron at the end of the video. “Except for Ben,” referring to keyboard player Ben Boyle. RIP, everyone else.
