Floor Streaming "Trick Scene"

Cult underground rock outfit Floor has released "Trick Scene," the fourth track from new album "Oblation." Give it a listen below, courtesy of The Onion A.V. Club.

Regarding the new track, guitarist Anthony Vialon comments: "Like a lot of our songs, 'Trick Scene' is partly open for interpretation. It's simply about people who use sexuality, or whatever, to further their agenda. Focused on things external to themselves, they eventually get played by their own game. Nonetheless, they're in control and have a choice."

Floor also recently announced a U.S. album release tour. The Noisey/Vice sponsored tour starts on April 30th in Miami, and has now been expanded to include dates in Orland and Tampa upon its completion. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

The band will be touring in support of forthcoming album, "Oblation," which will be released via Season of Mist on April 29th in North America (April 25th worldwide). More...
