Legendary progressive-rockers... WAIT, start again. Legendary jazz-rockers... NO, stop... Ditching the pigeonholes that don't quite fit for a second, the facts: Tortoise are back with a new album, and a new video.
The Chicago-based outfit's 'Beacons Of Ancestorship' album is released through Thrill Jockey on June 22. It's the band's sixth album, and first since 2004's 'It's All Around You'. It's been enjoying some quality time on the Clash stereo lately, too - we're quite The Fans.
'Prepare Your Coffin' is a highlight, and here we've got its video, directed by Andrew Paynter and JUICE. The track itself can actually be downloaded for free - just click HERE.
