Neil Michael Hagerty and The Howling Hex are opening up a whole new rando-cando of whoop ass on yall! For the first time since 2013, the man called Hagerty & the Hex have beefed up their efforts into the creation of a full-length album. Denver, which drops April 15th, features Neil's guitar playing beefed all the way up to ELEVEN atop the randomly democratic rhythm of the New Border Sound, which is bigger and faster than ever.

Case in point-the first single off of Denver: "Random Friends" is bouncy and unctuous, compressing the celebratory pulses of a full band, who can let it loose for hours, into a compact dance song. Sharp-angled and tightly wound, "Random Friends" blasts off from a mile high to even greater heights, with all the immediate pleasures they have to offer! Tip that hat and tap those toes: The Howling Hex dance for today because tomorrow never knows, and they don't want to spoil the party, any time at all!

Listen for yourself below and mark your calendars for April 15th!
