Early 2000s post-punk cult legends Man or Astro-Man? haven't produced a new record since the Is It Man … or Astro-Man debut twelve years ago. One may have assumed the album was just a one-and-done left to scrape the crates of record collectors, but a follow up is on the way.

Defcon 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 ...1 is the first new record for the band after a brief reunion in 2010 for a series of live performances. Recorded by art-rock legend Steve Albini, the new album retools the band in its imaginative live form. As well, the group will be performing a series of live performances across North America in the coming months, starting April 26th at Club Dada in Dallas.

Check the dates below and grab the new album May 21st, 2013.
