Sego have a new record, Sego Sucks, coming out this April and though the band touts it as a "highly unanticipated," nothing should be further from the truth. As the new single 'Heart Attack' illustrates, Sego are a clever and sharp rock band with a knack for mixing solid songwriting with eccentric flourishes.

Vocalist Spencer Petersen spits his visceral lyrics over a raucous bed of instruments, including a pulsing bass and some skittering guitars. The song seems to thrive in the tension that develops when something feels as though it may fall apart at any second. The video for 'Heart Attack,' directed by Benjamin Combs, complements this sound well, as Sego blasts through the track with an array of abstract images cast upon their faces. With the punchy vocals, wild instrumentation and trippy visuals, don't be surprised when you go back for repeat watches.

Sego Sucks is due out on April 5 via Roll Call Records. You can pre-order the record here. U.S. readers will find a lengthy set of tour dates down below, taking Sego across the country for much of the spring. And give 'Heart Attack' a few more listens up above, it is pretty damn addictive.
