Mike Dillon & Punkadelick shared a new single, “Pandas,” set to land on the supergroup’s forthcoming album, Inflorescence, due out on January 27 via Royal Potato Family. Mike Dillon, Nikki Glaspie and Brian Haas also detailed headlining and support dates set for Winter and Spring 2023.

Mike Dillon & Punkadelick announced their debut LP Inflorescence in November and shared the single, “Devil’s Playground.” The trio now follows with “Pandas,” which saw Dillon reflecting on the precarious plight of both the natural world but also humankind.

“‘Pandas’ was composed in my apartment above Checkpoint Charlie’s off Frenchman Street in New Orleans,” Dillon noted. “I had been meditating on the destruction of natural habitats for human convenience all the while painfully aware of the homeless situation in our own cities. So you might say the song is a meditation on the helpless nature of the panda bear’s imminent demise, but also a metaphor for our own social fabric hanging by a thread.”

Listen to “Pandas” below:
