    Earlier this year, Wild Flag and Helium member Mary Timony announced her new project, Ex Hex. The indie rock three-piece, rounded out by Laura Harris and Betsy Wright, teased with a 7-inch and even a short tour, which included an impressive appearance at SXSW in March.

    Now, the band’s set to release their full-length debut, Rips, on October 7th via Merge Records. It was recorded in North Carolina over the course of two weeks with Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement).

    Our first official look at the new LP comes courtesy of “Don’t Wanna Lose”. While the song’s reminiscent of Wild Flag’s rollicking material, it simultaneously holds its own as a sizzling and energetic little rocker. Listen in below, followed by the album’s official artwork.
