FUZZ, the trio of Ty Segall (drums, vocals), Charles Moothart (guitar, vocals), and Chad Ubovich (bass, vocals), have announced their first album in five years, III, which will be released on October 23rd via In The Red Recordings.

III was recorded and mixed at United Recording and produced by the legendary Steve Albini. He kept the focus on the live sounds of the trip, with the use of overdubs and studio tricks were kept to a minimum

The announcement comes with the thrashing new single “Returning” which hits hard in all the ways that you’ve come to expect. It’s also the album’s opener as is described as follows:

Album opener “Returning” serves as a sort of mission statement for the album. It’s an auditory meditation on the power of one and the different perspectives of one, whether it is the singular person looking inward, or a group of people coming together as a single unit. Not only is it an echo of the return of FUZZ, but also a broader return to form – raw and empowered through vulnerability.

Enjoy a listen to “Returning” below, along with the tracklist (the album art is the photo above).

    III tracklist:
