THE PEDALJETS have unveiled a first video from their brand new album.

The effortlessly anthemic 'Disassociation Blues' is the opening cut from Twist The Lens, the Kansas City band's fourth full-length, which comes more than six years after its predecessor What's In Between.

The video by Luke McKinney, a time-lapse travelogue of another night on the town, might ring a lot of bells for a lot of people.

First formed back in 1984, The Pedaljets cut their teeth on the Midwest bar circuit alongside the likes of Hüsker Dü, The Replacements and Flaming Lips, splitting in '89 after the release of their eponymous second album. It was a desire to give that album a proper, remastered, release that brought the band back together in 2008, a reunion that eventually led to What's In Between in 2013.

Twist The Lens is the first album to feature new guitarist Cody Wyoming, while previous guitarist Paul Malinowski was in the production chair. Alt-rock studio legend John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile) mixed the album, while old friend Archer Prewitt from The Sea And Cake provided the artwork.

Set for release on 14 February through Electric Moth Records, Twist The Lens is available to pre-order here.
