The Breeders return with new track Wait In The Car

The Breeders

The Breeders have released a colourful video for their new track Wait In The Car.

It’s the first material from the lineup of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson since 1993 album Last Splash and the band’s first since 2008’s Mountain Battles.

The video features artwork and visuals from Chris Briggs and Martin Andersen and has been released to mark the announcement that The Breeders have signed a new record deal with 4AD.

The pair say: “It all started with a brick. We both liked the idea of using something iconic yet quite banal. An old brick has a story and it’s a beautiful raw object.

“We started collecting more and more – some intact, some broken – and realised how different they all appear, each one having its own identity.”

The new single will also form part of a series of 7-inch vinyl releases. The first will be available on the band’s upcoming tour, and will be backed with a cover of Amon Düül II’s Archangel’s Thunderbird.

The second single will be available exclusively at select independent record stores from October 27 on red vinyl and features Kim Deal’s take on Mike Nesmith’s Joanne.

A release date for the third single, which will feature a cover of Devo’s Gates Of Steel on yellow vinyl, will be revealed later in the year. Each vinyl pressing is limited to 1500 copies worldwide.
