    Punk icons X have released their first new music in more than 30 years. The Los Angeles act hit the studio earlier this year to record five new songs, and today they’re unveiling “Delta 88 Nightmare” and its accompanying video.

    A rough demo of “Delta 88 Nightmare” originally surfaced on a 2001 reissue of the band’s debut album, Los Angeles. This new version marks X’s first release to feature original members Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake since 1985.

    Along with laying down a proper studio version of “Delta 88 Nightmare”, the band recorded four additional songs. That includes the track’s B-side, “Cyrano de Berger’s Back”, which was written by Doe prior to X’s formation. A 7-inch vinyl release of the single, due November 29th, is available for pre-order.
