Baltimore noise rock hooligans Dope Body are gearing up to release their new full length, Lifer, this fall. "Hired Gun" is the first taste of the band's new material, and, boy, is it a sweaty one. While the track has its fair share of odd guitar sounds, they don't disguise the song's estatic melodicism and swagger. "Hired Gun" hearkens back to early British punk-- sounding at once snotty and heroic.
Lifer is due out October 21 via Drag City. Check out Dope Body's tour dates below.
