Listen: Andrew Jackson Jihad’s new song “Kokopelli Face Tattoo”

    Andrew Jackson Jihad are prepping their fifth studio album, Christmas Island, for a May 6th release via SideOneDummy Records. Produced by John Congelton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Elmwood Studios in Dallas, TX, a press release states that the 12-track full-length is full of songs that “blur the line between the ludicrous and the earnest.”

    Though the band has already shared “Children of God”, today they return with “Kokopelli Face Tattoo”, the second taste of the upcoming LP. It’s a searing track, one of the fuzzier offerings of their oeuvre, but it still contains all the elements of a great Andrew Jackson Jihad song. For instance, like its predecessor, the song finds frontman Sean Bonnette delivering some witty lines like, “Hating you won’t make you suck any less.” Solid advice from the Phoenix-based folk-punks. Listen in below.

    Pre-orders for Christmas Island are ongoing over at the band’s website and iTunes page. Options include a special edition Andrew Jackson Jihad Snuggie. Remember those?
