Fall Heroes Preview #10: !!! (“As If”)

!!! CD

They ain’t monkeying around with the new album, which drops in mid October.

By Blurt Staff

New York/Sacramento/Portland-based !!! recently announced their sixth studio album As If, due Oct. 16 via Warp, and it promises to be a gem of a record, the followup to 2013’s outstanding Thr!!!er. The group has already offered up streams of two tracks: the R&B tinted House track “Sick Ass Moon”, and “Freedom! ’15”, a self-described disco odyssey layered with soulful female vocals.

The latter is now being featured with a part- lyric/part-dance workout video starring !!! frontman Nic Offer and the song’s featured vocalists Yolanda Harris Dancy and Taletha Manor. Check it out:
