Exclusive first listen to opening track from forthcoming fifth album

Space rockers Mugstar have their fifth album on the way - Axis is released on October 29 via Agitated Records, and we've got an exclusive first taster of what to expect - here's opener 'Black Fountain':

The cut is a typically psychedelic affair, with echoed guitars reverberating around cymbal rolls, before giving way to a full-blown percussion freak-out and with a nicely 70s prog bass line.

The band are playing a couple of dates later this month - catch them at the following:

Fri 28 - Music From Elsewhere, Bishop Castle, Shropshire
Sat 29 - Camp & Furnace at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia
