After some cryptic "#6666" tweets started popping up over the weekend on the rappers' accounts, we suspected something was coming soon. The blistering, experimental track will be featured on a 7-inch out in October.

The limited-edition 7-inch also features a track called "Please Go," and both were produced collectively by the duo. The disc drops October 8.
"We had these two songs done for a really long time," Astro told Chaz Kangas in a new interview featured in our New York sibling the Village Voice. "The full-length is taking a different direction than these two songs, but we really wanted to get them out. We're really proud of them, and a seven inch made the most sense because it's only two songs and seven inches are cool. I'm an old indie rock kid, he's an old punk rock kids and we both grew up collecting seven inches and being pumped when our favorite band would put out a single and have some obscure song on the b-side as a rad thing." Ahem, the FULL LENGTH?
Anyhow, not much is known about the timeline and structure for all that just yet. But given the amount of fun these guys have onstage together -- even just doing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at Target Field -- there must be live gigs in the works.
Here's a bit more for your eyeballs to digest:
A whole crapload of pre-order options for the Four Fists 7-inch exist over in the Doomtree store, including plenty that will get you some limited-edition autographed vinyl.
