Punk icons The Distillers

Legendary band The Distillers have returned with their first piece of new music in 15 years, ‘Man vs. Magnet’.

Earlier this year, The Distillers excited their loyal fanbase by announcing they were returning to the world of music after a twelve-year break. Soon, the band announced a series of comeback performances, which kicked off back in April. Taking to Instagram after the band’s first show since 2006, Aussie frontwoman Brody Dalle shared an emotional post on Instagram which highlighted her excitement at the reunion.

“14 years later and the jacket still fits…it’s been an emotional rollercoaster to get here but I’m grateful for it all,” she wrote. “I’m not afraid of a little old ride. Bring it. It was emotional tonight, me, us, you, the peeps on the street. I’m loving it and you. The Distillers feels so right.”

Now, the group have taken the next step in their reunion plans and released their brand new single. Titled ‘Man vs. Magnet’, the track only had its live debut two nights ago, when the band performed it in Vancouver, Canada. Their first piece of new music since their 2003 album Coral Fang, fans are already loving the band’s return, with the new track sounding like they never even took a single day off.

The track is also accompanied with ‘Blood In Gutters’ as the B-side. If you think that track sounds a little familiar, then you might remember it from when Brody Dalle released it on her debut solo album, Diploid Love, back in 2014. At this stage, the band haven’t made any official announcements in regards to whether or not we’re going to be receiving a new album from them, but if this new single is anything to go by, we’re incredibly excited to see what The Distillers will offer on their return.
