The Dismemberment Plan hasn't released an album since 2001's Change—a fact that will be remedied October 15 with the release of Uncanney Valley. We tried to get the D.C. post-punk gentlemen to join us for Undercover back in 2011, when they reunited for a short tour (and lit the fuse that would become a new album). The band will do some touring on the new album, but nothing like the get-in-the-van mania they were once known for. Here, they bring the rock to Heart's 1977 smash hit "Barracuda," which lives on classic-rock stations to this day. Enjoy the riffs.
