The Skinny: Montreal’s raucous garage-rockers Le Trouble are coming to town for CMJ next week, and in advance, the band is giving away their stand-out track “Mission Bell” via SoundCloud. Reality Strikes, their debut EP for Lava Records, will see a release next month on November 5th. On Reality Strikes, the band echoes the likes of first-EP-era Arcade Fire and Is This It-era The Strokes, while conjuring its own irresistibly raucous sound in the process.

Reality Strikes Track Listing:

01. Mission Bell
02. Help You Out
03. Real Talk (Part 2)
04. Fine Line
05. Reality Strikes
06. Red Shirt
