    Now thats a first single. Love it. Listened to it 10x more than Dark Matter already
    I don’t want to jump to conclusions but I’m with you. Not a knock against DM as I do enjoy it for what it is. But I definitely reach for Mustang way more than I did with DM. I hope this single is a good taste of the album. Their last album was so somber, this one reminds me a little of early KOL. The vocal delivery, the bassline…. Just has a great feel.

    I’m pretty sure it was discussed in their interview with Zane. It’s on Apple Music. My grandmother suffered from dementia and it ultimately took her. I was her caretaker and it’s just such a terrible disease. This verse really hits me 

    Parlor games and six o'clock news
    Hands of a stranger touching you
    Wide awake incased in a dream
    Everything is not as it seems
    All your time is heaven sent
    Days and the nights all start to blend
    It's not like this town to set you free
    The more you look the less you see


    Oh man that really hits me hard! Loosing my mother coming up on a year this March to dementia was the worst thing we have experienced as a family! Thanks for posting I need to listen to this song 
    I’ve seen cancer close up with my mom and dementia with my grandma. Both awful but to me dementia is the absolute worst. Sorry to hear that Jose. They’re playing Forest Hills in September! One of my favorite venues. Let me know if you decide to go. We can finally say hello 
    I’m in 👍 did you get tickets yet I wonder if there’s an GA’s still to be had

    My approach is I will wait until the week of. With cancellations and the threat of weather because it’s outdoors, I’d rather wait until the last minute for a show like this. I did the same thing with QOTSA last year. I don’t think it’ll be hard to get a ticket

    Mustang is absolutely kicking my ass it’s on a loop in my head! I was hoping that DM would do that but it really hasn’t at all!

    I did the same thing for Queens of the Stone Age last year. Wasn't going to go until a friend told me about it and then when he wound up not being able to go, I bought a ticket the night before and had a great time at the show.

    Yes, that will do nicely! Very good performance. Not overly sold on the song tbh. However, that might win me over.
