Psychedelic punks Creepoid are gearing up to release their latest effort, Cemetery Highrise Slum on Collect Records next month. But if you don’t want to wait until then to hear new material, the band has just premiered their newest single “Shaking”. It is a shimmering, slow, guitar heavy track that draws influences from Built To Spill.

Frontman Sean Miller talked to Fader about the track:

For me, this song represents a longing for the past. As time goes by, you start to notice many of the people you grew up with have cashed in their chips and given up on themselves as individuals or critical thinkers. Perhaps the shimmer has gone from their eyes and they resent you for keeping yours, maybe they’ve remained the same and it’s you who has changed. Regardless, the path you all shared at one point is undeniable, and the memory of it comes with an everlasting sense of fondness that is simultaneously unforgettable and unattainable. I will always love the place where I grew up, even if it’s only for what it once was or what I perceived it to be at the time. That fond sadness is at the heart of this track.

Cemetery Highrise Slum is staled for a June 23rd release, and the band will be taking over Johnny Brenda’s on the 26th alongside Ecstatic Vision and Sick Feeling for their release party.
