Hear an exclusive new track from J. Roddy Walston & The Business

Illustration for article titled Hear an exclusive new track from J. Roddy Walston & The Business

J. Roddy Walston & The Business are about embracing one's inner weirdness. The band's third album, entitled Essential Tremors, comes out Sept. 10 and features a title that's a nod to a nervous disorder suffered by Walston himself. Many of the group's new songs are also about owning what makes each person different.


The A.V. Club has the exclusive premiere of "Black Light," the album's new single. Walston's southern roots shine through in the classic rock-and-roll riffs, but there's something scrappy in the delivery that relays the guys' punk spirit.

JRW&TB are hitting the road this fall as well. Those dates are listed below the track.
