Propagandhi Announces New Album "Failed States," Streaming Single Online

Celebrating three decades of life in the political and musical hinterlands, Propagandhi will release sixth studio album, "Failed States," on September 4th. The album’s first single “Failed States” debuts today and can be heard now in the player below. Additionally, Propagandhi will kick off a North American tour in September with support from Comback Kid. Dates are listed below.

“Our goal is always to create a no-holds-barred, forward-thinking, tip-of-the-hat to the giants -- Voivod, Rush, NoMeansNo, SNFU, Sacrifice, Razor, Guilt Parade – that have gone before us,” says vocalist and guitarist, Jesus H. Chris. “We are in their debt and take the mission seriously. Even when we're singing about liking Kurt Russell as Captain Ron, we take the mission seriously. Failed States is our most formidable – and to me personally, our most surprising -- attempt at conjuring the numinous from the quotidian. Yes, I had to look those words up.”

The track listing is:

1. Note to Self - 5:56
2. Failed States - 1:54
