Newly-formed rock group, Crystal Fairy, are streaming the title track off their forthcoming self-titled debut, Crystal Fairy, due out via Ipecac Recordings on February 24th. The band includes Le Butcherettes’ Teri Gender Bender, the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover with At The Drive-In’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.

“Panic attacks are man’s worst enemy but our most powerful mental invention, somehow we’ve managed to use them to calm our nerves down and let the music flow,” says Gender Bender of the song. “Sometimes the agony within the self makes it appropriate to let the jittery hands do the story telling.”
