LITHICS PREMIERE VIDEO FOR "SPECS" AND FULL US TOUR DATES AT BROOKLYN VEGAN

April 12, 2018

On a grey winter morning Lithics used a handheld video camera to shoot scenes of themselves pretending to play music, walking around a reservoir, blowing their noses etc, and synced it to the song "Specs." It was easy, literally anyone could have done it. "Specs," a song loosely about the presumptuous desire to know the details about a stranger’s personal life, is the second single from their new record Mating Surfaces, out May 25th on Kill Rock Stars! Click here to watch the video at Brooklyn Vegan.



Lithics will be touring the USA in June, including MANY dates with Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks!

"Lithics exist in a nervous fragmented world, a propulsive futuristic hell where anything can be consumed at any time, where any sound from any era can be conjured and reproduced and yet most of what we are stuck with seems like a trite reproduction of a sentiment long lost. A stern danceable sound that summons cut up snapshots of Su Tissue and Mark E Smith, an imagined landscape where Captain Beefheart hits that 99 Records “Too Many Creeps” beat.<
