Whirling dervish of psychological wreckage cum psych-punk fivesome Destruction Unit is barreling toward the release of their forthcoming LP, Deep Trip (out August 20 on Sacred Bones), and somewhere in a Tempe desert sandstorm, a new track has shaken loose. Listen to D-Unit's new brain scrambler, "Bumpy Road," and hold yourself. You're going to be OK.
Catch Destruction Unit on the next leg of their tour, and pre-order Deep Trip because it is a very, very good thing.
