The local trio have today unleashed (via Loudwire) a new song from their forthcoming album titled “What Is This? Where Are We?,” available for streaming below.

Additionally, Spotlights recently added more tour dates to their itinerary, including a record release bash at Brooklyn Bazaar on October 6, as part of Pelican‘s tour with Jaye Jayle [TIX].
