Sebadoh will release Defend Yourself, its first LP in 14 years, on Sept. 17. The band released the Secret EP last month, offering fans a taste of what’s to come. Now Lou Barlow et al. have released the first single from the upcoming album, “I Will.”
According to Barlow, Sebadoh never really called it quits. “We were always going to make another record. There was never any point where we looked at each other and said, ‘That’s it. We’re Done.’ We never actually quit at all—we’ve been making music the whole time,” he said in a press release. The song and album preview are below, along with dates for Sebadoh's summer tour.
