Memphis’s Ex-Cult have moved to In the Red Records for their new three-song single, the A-Side of which is streaming below for the first time! “Stick the Knife In” has a distinctly dark post-punk feel, using early Bauhaus, Killing Joke, and more as jumping off points. Look for the song in physical form this fall, a new record in 2016, and the band on stage at the gigs listed below.

Ex-Cult frontman Chris Shaw commented on the new track for Noisey:
"After two albums, an EP, half a dozen singles and countless tours across the United States, we are pleased to announce that we will be working with In The Red Records for the foreseeable future. Ex-Cult has recorded in professional studios and in our friends bedrooms, working with everyone from Doug Easley to Ty Segall in the process. For our latest single, we enlisted the expertise of the Memphis gentleman Keith Cooper, who records straight to tape in his living room when he isn't playing with our friend Jack Oblivian. "Stick the Knife In," is a calculated thumper lyrically dedicated to being a scumbag at the Dog Track located 10 minutes outside of Memphis. The single will be released this fall, with a Ty Segall produced album coming in 2016. Throw the dice and make back what you owe. They Sleep, We Live."
