Illustration for article titled Listen to Disintegrate, the new single from the recently reunited Man Or Astro-Man?

Alabama space act Man Or Astro-Man? toured its asses off in the ‘90s, playing its special brand of surf-rock until it broke up in 2001. The group briefly reunited in 2005, broke up again in 2006, got back together in 2010, and is now set to release a new record. Defcon 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… comes out May 21 via Vessels/Chunklet, and features a title that will frustrate typing journalists for years to come.


Brooklyn Vegan has the first single, “Disintegrate,” which is a pretty straightforward rock track from this notoriously instrumental and freaky act. It’s streaming below, right above a list of the band’s extensive and upcoming tour dates.
