Mos Generator detail new album Abyssinia; stream new single “Wicked Willow”; announce North American tour dates

Mos Generator are streaming the first single from their upcoming studio effort Abyssinia. Titled “Wicked Willow”, the song can be heard above courtesy of Decibel. Guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed comments on the song:

‘Wicked Willow’ shows us consciously moving into new territory. As a songwriter, I have become less concerned with the confines of the genre I write in and more willing to open the floodgates for all of my influences to make their way into the core sound of the band. That makes some songs, like ‘Wicked Willow’, hard to define. Heavy pop in B tuning with a self-loathing gothic tinge to the lyrics may or may not be the best way to describe it. We will see what the listeners have to say.”

Abyssinia is due to arrive on July 15th in Europe and August 5th in North America through Listenable Records. The cover art and track listing have also been revealed and can be seen below.
