Brooklyn's Psymon Spine have released their new album Head Body Connector via Northern Spy Records.

The LP is a raw, dynamic, guitar-forward studio record from a band obsessed with production. It's also a record that, more so than any previous Psymon release, is explicitly informed by the band's notoriously cathartic, emotionally charged live show. 

Stereogum Included Head Body Connector in their “Anticipated Albums of 2024” feature and today, WXPN's Press Play recognized the album as a noteworthy release. In anticipation of the launch, the band offered a sneak peek of the LP through tracks like “Bored of Guitar” (a provocation because it's built around the guitar), “Boys,” and the irreverent “Wizard Acid,” a woozy disco track loaded with catchy synths.  Additionally, today they also release the new single “Be The Worm.” 

They share: 

“‘'Be the Worm's' inception was an atmospheric granular sound bite that Noah made using a Haruomi Hosono sample. It has ended up a post-punk song built around dueling guitars and interwoven lyrics. A simultaneously self-deprecating exploration of our own uselessness and a celebration of the small part we can play in our ecosystem. We love that we can utilize multiple lead singers, both to capitalize on each singer's strengths and to maintain musical interest and variety for the listener. For 'Be the Worm' we wanted to push this idea further by splitting the lead vocal between two voices, as with the guitar, that weaved in and out of each other both lyrically and melodically. This tension resolves in a satisfying outro as the overall tenor of the song turns optimistic and the voices and guitars finally join together. 

Though the Haruomi Hosono sample was cut from the final draft, the band will forever internally refer to the 'Be the Worm' as Haruomi” 

On March 10 Psymon Spine will kick off a run of tours that will take them across the United States, the UK, and Europe. Fans can anticipate a mix of fan-favorites and tracks from Head Body Connector. Stateside they will play their first show in Nashville, TN and make stops at SXSW, Philadelphia and Washington, DC among other markets before a hometown show at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on March 23. Tickets are on sale here and all dates are listed below.
