Crossover squad In Defence has been thrashing and burning through the US of A since 2006, but haven't graced our ears with new material since 2012's Straighedge Beer Gut single. They've been too busy touring their collective keisters off to step foot in a studio, and Beezlebub bless 'em for it. The perpetual road dogs will be hitting the road again for yet another extensive US tour next month, hitting nearly every DIY joint, all ages space, and hot-shit venue from their Minneapolis stomping grounds to Florida and back.

These Twin City merauders are keeping mum about their post-tour recording plans, but we've gotten our grubbly little hands on a brand-new, one-off tour single called "Unholy Water." Produced and mixed by Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind, it underlines their anti-religion, pro-punk, pro-moshing, pro-taco stance. Listening to this is the most fun you're gonna have on a Thursday afternoon (unless you're already taco moshing with some friendly punks, in which case, can we come?).
