Vundabar have announced the release of a new album, Devil for the Fire, which will be out on February 11, 2022 via Gawk. The trio has also shared a video for the album’s title track in addition to announcing a 2022 U.S. tour. Check out the video (directed by frontman Brandon Hagen), along with the album’s tracklist/cover art and full list of tour dates, below.

“The beginnings of this song came about as I was binge watching film noir and burning through books on neuroplasticity,” Hagen explains in a press release. “The subconscious and subconscious fear are big things in a lot of film noir, so I had that on my mind—sequences of abstract and surreal images to convey an inner world that has its own dream logic. Shortly after, my dad had a life-threatening emergency heart surgery and subsequent stroke. I finished the song between visits to the hospital, not knowing whether my dad would survive. The entire thing was surreal; the hospitals in the age of COVID, the looming specter of death hanging over us, the bizarre timing of his accident with what I’d been reading and writing.”

Last month, the band shared two other songs from the upcoming album, “Aphasia” and “Ringing Bell.” Their previous album, Either Light, came out last year via Gawk.
