Rock band The Dead Betties is excited to release its first single since 2008 from their forthcoming self-titled album, slated for a winter release. Lead single ‘The Way We Live Now’ shares its name with the classic Susan Sontag short story and is an ode to civil rights pioneers from the 1980s. The single contains two original B-sides; ‘Kissless Sex’ and ‘No Comment’, the latter containing spoken samples of hateful internet comments over a cacophonous wall of guitar and drum noise. Also included in the single are three covers; ‘Blood’ by Babes in Toyland, ‘Lucky’ by Britney Spears and Madonna’s underrated ‘Angel’, a long standing favorite of the band.
