The Breeders Are Back: "We're Gonna Rise"

The Breeders Are Back: "We're Gonna Rise"

It's been 14 years since The Breeders released Last Splash, one of the seminal albums of my youth, and more than 15 years since The Pixies first disbanded. But bassist and belter Kim Deal remains one of the coolest chicks in rock. Her intoxicating warble on "Do You Love Me Now?" and the emphatic enthusiasm of the classic "Cannonball" still get me right in the gut — a fact I was reminded of this week, with the release of a brand-new Breeders song.

Appropriately titled "We're Gonna Rise" and now playing on the band's MySpace Page, the song will appear on the Breeders' first CD since 2002. It's called Mountain Battles and will hit stores in April 2008. So far, I like what I'm hearing: The toned-down track is true to form, with lazily romantic vocals and a slow-grinding core. Are you as excited as I am about the Breeders' return? Listen to the track and let me know.
