Late '90s alt-metal band Taproot has reunited and is now streaming their first new single in 11 years "VIP (V\CT\M \ PLAY)", which I'm pretty sure is pronounced "victim I play." Taproot will continue their hatred of vowels with a new record titled SC\SSRS due out September 29. Pre-orders are available here.
Alongside the new single comes a Taproot compilation of remastered demos and rarities titled Best of Besides. The compilation is out on all streaming services and will be available on CD come May 19.
