Melbourne’s beloved post punk noiseniks Witch Hats are back with a much anticipated new single from their upcoming second LP. Pleasure Syndrome is the band’s second full length LP (and follows 2009’s mini album/EP Solarium Down the Causeway).

Giving their pasty white skins a bit of a tan, it was recorded over two weeks at the world famous Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas with US producer Casey Rice twiddling the knobs in March 2011.

The band are about to release their first single ‘Hear Martin’; a keyboard-driven story about “Australia’s most infamous marksman” which will be launched this Friday 2nd September at The Tote in Melbourne with special guests Teeth and Tongue & Wolfy and the Batcubs.

Album launch dates are set to announced in the coming weeks, but in the meantime feast your eyes on the their new video for ‘Hear Martin’ which was shot amongst the art deco grandeur of Hepburn Springs’ Palais Theatre.
