Let’s call it “hoedown punk.” Or maybe post-country. Whatever genre-bending definition you feel best suits Black Lips’ newest release is bound to raise some eyebrows. Justice After All is a woods-traipsing barn-burner featuring some fuzzed-out rootsy guitars and a deceptively catchy melody.
 
It’s also the second serving we’re getting from the band’s forthcoming album, Underneath The Rainbow, due out on March 18 via Vice. Our first taste, Boys In The Wood, showcased the band’s bluesier side, and the video that followed the song’s release made sure it wouldn’t be easily forgotten. Check out Justice After All (via NME) and their tour dates below, and prepare yourself for whatever surprises these Atlanta boys have in store.
