It's been 14 years since The Distillers last released an album, meaning chances are the first time you heard "My name's Brody, I'm from Melbourne / Fitzroy Melbourne" you were still regularly grazing knees somewhere near a secondary school playground. Or maybe you're a little older and were part of a group walking around town with liberty spikes, swigging plastic bottles of White Lightning cider. Or perhaps you recognise their prodigious talent and meaning, in which case respect to your good taste. Either way, what does it matter—it looks like the Distillers are making a comeback, Sing Sing motherfucking Death House, and Drain all of the Blood. Yeah!
The news was announced this morning with a post from the Twitter account @The_Distillers_±which, though unverified, came through by birthing their way into the world with a relatively high quality teaser video. And though it doesn't sound exactly like the Distillers, this is the world of a change, so lets hope it is. And if not's not then fuck you for putting a downer on 2018 on the 3rd of January.
The Twitter video's above, and here's an embed of "Young Crazed and Peeling" because why the hell not.
