Oh Sees Announce Protean Threat LP, Share “Dreary Nonsense”: Listen

Oh Sees have announced a new album Protean Threat. The LP is set to release Sept. 25 via Castle Face, with the band offering the following description in an all-caps statement: “THIS RECORDING IS AT THE APOGEE OF SCUZZ. PUNK ANTHEM AMULETS FOR YOUR EARS AND HEART. A BATTERY FOR YOUR CORE.”

Known for frequently changing their name, Oh Sees (now apparently going by “OSees,” according to a press release) have shared the first single from the album, “Dreary Nonsense,” a tight and twitchy garage punk track harkening back to the group’s earlier days. The band also included a live performance of the track in a rehearsal taped back in March that saw the appearance of several new tracks set to appear on Protean Threat. Check out the recording of “Dreary Nonsense” below.

Oh Sees had announced a U.K, tour between May and July earlier this year. With those shows cancelled due to COVID-19, the band has shifted their tour to a set of 15 dates throughout November across the U.K., Ireland, France and Germany. Scroll down to check out the new tour dates along with Protean Threat’s album art and tracklist.
