As well as revealing their new list of tour dates, today (January 30), the Ohio alt-rockers have also shared a cover of ‘Shocker In Gloomtown’.

Originally a 1994 track released by Guided By Voices, The Breeders have not only put their own spin on the song but also shared a new animated visual accompaniment, created by Jesse Peretz and featuring animation by Jon Carling.

Were you there? / Were you kicking? / Alive in aisle twelve / Gimmick of the century / In boxes and jars / And giveaway cars / He motioning for you,” sings Deal at the start of the track. Check it out below.

Currently, The Breeders are wrapping up the last of their live shows as part of a sold-out tour of Australia and New Zealand. Later this spring they will head to New York for four dates at Madison Square Garden, before heading back to the United States later in the summer for four gigs at The Forum in Los Angeles.

All of the US shows for 2024 will be alongside Olivia Rodrigo, and you can find any remaining tickets here.

In other Breeders news, last autumn the band shared a previously unreleased version of ‘Divine Hammer’ featuring Dinosaur Jr‘s J Mascis. They also recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of their landmark album ‘Last Splash’.
