In mid-December of last year we reported that Grinderman had announced its break-up at an Australian festival. Weeks after that, we also reported that fans of the band need not fear, as they still planned on releasing a remix album. Grinderman 2 RMX will be released internationally on Mute Records–on Anti- in North America–on March 12.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner remixed the group’s song “Bellringer Blues,” and now we’ve got another treat from the forthcoming release. The Silver Alert remix of Grinderman’s “Evil” features Matt Berninger of The National. And yes, it’s evil. This is looking more and more like the right note to end a band on. Stream the track below.
