Thou is streaming the second single off their new album Umbilical, a track titled "Unbidden Guest" which is also the closing cut on the record. Umbilical will hit the shelves on May 31st, via Sacred Bones and is available for pre-order here.

"Physical deterioration by way of psychological disarray. Retreading a well-worn path of self grievance. Othering mental illness and learned behavior in order to crush them under the dominance of epistemic willpower. The last time you cried, who'd you think was inside?" stated vocalist Bryan Funck of the track.

Thou previously said about the album: "This record is for the radicals, the crackpots, the exiles who have escaped the wasteland of capitulation. This record is for the militants and zealots refusing to surrender to comforts, to practicalities, to thirty pieces of silver. And this record is most especially for the weaklings and malingerers, burdened by capricious indulgence, hunched by the deep wounds of compromise, shuffling in limp approximation, desperately reaching back towards integrity and conviction"
