Ty Segall takes you to rock 'n' roll church on new LP for Drag City, makes you sin at his upcoming shows

Has it been a minute since you went to church? Don’t lie — Ty Segall knows exactly what you’re up to Saturday night and Sunday morning. But tell your mama not to worry; Mr. Segall’s got a new album on the way for Drag City, and come October 9, he’s gonna take you there. To communion. To handlin’ snakes. To Drag City. Whatever. The Clydesdales of static guitar bliss are all hitched to the carriage of gut-wrenching beats and ready to take you to pay your respects at the Church of Down and Dirty Rock ‘n’ Roll.

They say God created the Earth in seven days. That’s pretty quick. But with five studio albums, dozens of EPs, collaborations with other artists, and more singles than you can shake a stick at — all churned out within the last four years — Ty Segall ain’t too far behind. And now, with the birth of dude’s latest, Twins, the guru of garage rock has added another member to the family. The ultra prolific San Francisco screamer is gearing up for an equally prolific fall tour, with dates from Vegas to Vancouver, including festival stops at Treasure Island in his hometown and Neon Reverb in Sin City. As an added bonus, fellow travelers Thee Oh Sees will be along for most of the ride. So dust off your white gloves and your Easter hats, and as Ty Segall hollers on Twins’s mind-bending opener, “Thank God for Sinners.”
