Protomartyr, who recently opened for Bernie Sanders, have announced their fifth album: The Detroit band returns with Ultimate Success Today, which is out May 29 via Domino. Watch the video for their new song “Processed by the Boys” below. Protomartyr also plan to head out on tour. Check out their schedule below.

“There is darkness in the poetry of Ultimate Success Today,” says the Raincoats’ Ana da Silva in the album’s accompanying bio. “The theme of things ending, above all human existence, is present and reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Our world has reached a point that makes us afraid: fires, floods, earthquakes, hunger, war, intolerance…. There are cries of despair. Is there hope? Greed is the sickness that puts life in danger.”

Ultimate Success Today features contributions from Nandi Rose (aka Half Waif), jazz alto sax player Jemeel Moondoc, Izaak Mills, and Fred Lonberg-Holm. The new album follows 2017’s Relatives in Descent and their 2018 Consolation EP.
