After cryptically telling Kerrang! they had some new material in their back pockets, L.S. Dunes have just shared a brand-new single.

Entitled Benadryl Subreddit (more on that name in a second), the five-piece have unleashed their first new music since last year’s excellent Past Lives album, with an equally ace music video to accompany it.

Says Frank Iero of the whole thing: “Benadryl’s title comes from a conversation that Mikey Way [My Chemical Romance] and I were having one night on tour about sober guys finding out legal ways of getting high without doing actual drugs and messing with their sobriety.

“The music for this song came about when I knew we were going into the desert to record with Alex Newport at Rancho De La Luna. I had just received a new guitar in the mail from Ben Wasser at Guitarworks called the ‘Shaft’ and I got to thinking about the desert and what I thought that guitar should sound like in that setting. That riff came out immediately. Benadryl Subreddit represents the heat of the day out in the desert, sweating bullets and going fast.”

“In the early stages of the demo it was clear this song needed to be recorded and released sooner than many of the other songs we’ve been working on,” continues Travis Stever. “It captures an energy for the moment. It’s hard to keep hold of the energy and aim from demo to final recordings. I feel like with Alex Newport we did it!”

“Frank sent this infectious riff, and I immediately knew what I was going to play,” adds Tucker Rule. “The chemistry of this band is undeniable, and I love it so much.”
