The sophomore album by One Thousand Motels, Get In Where You Fit In, will be released by Universal Music on April 30.

The band, based around the core of “punk supergroup” the Mutants, feature Rat Scabies, celebrated drummer with The Damned, and bassist/multi-instrumentalist Chris Constantinou, who’s worked with Adam & The Ants and Sinead O’Connor among others. They’re joined on the new record by the distinctively rasping voice of Coachella Valley Low Desert native Sean Wheeler, whose credits include Josh Homme, Lemmy and Robby Krieger. He adds to the album’s potent mixture of rock, soul, gospel, and pop vibes. Watch the video for lead single “When The Rabbit’s Got The Gun” here:
