Brooklyn-based experimental rockers Starring released their most recent LP, ABCDEFG-HIJKLMNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ, in June via Northern Spy. Take a listen to the album track "The Best" and watch the music video for another, called "Aphonia," at the bottom of this post.

Starring are currently on tour in support of ABCDEFG-HIJKLMNOP-QRSTUV-WXYZ with fellow Brooklyn noisemakers Guardian Alien (the project of ex-Liturgy drummer Greg Fox). That tour hits Chicago next week, on August 18, for a show at the Hideout. E+ are also on the bill, and advance tickets are on sale.
