Hardcore punk act Gouge Away released their first new music in three years on Monday. The new single is called “Idealized” and marks their first new release since their single “Consider,” which also had a cover of their namesake The Pixies as the B-side with “Wave of Mutilation.”
“We wrote this song in a Florida storage unit, somewhere on the timeline between tons of touring and the world shutting down,” the band says about the new single. “It’s a culmination of everything we like and always wanted to write, and fits the vibe of where we were at mentally at the time.” The band then continues to say, “’Idealized’ almost never saw the light of day but we like this song so much we felt the need to properly record it and put it out into the world. We have been absolutely dying to play it live.”
The band also announced a short tour of the East Coast starting in Miami, Florida on July 28 and culminating in Boston on August 6.
