Snapped Ankles will release their new EP The Best Light Is The Last Light on 30 June, having recently signed to The Leaf Label.

The new single from the release, 'Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berlin', one of the group's most explosive, motorik cuts to date, is available to stream via Bandcamp below.

Accompanying the release is a quote from he Old Norse text Konungs Skuggsjá:

"It once happened in that country (and this seems indeed strange) that a living creature was caught in the forest as to which no one could say definitely whether it was a man or some other animal, for no one could get a word from it or be sure that it understood human speech. It had the human shape, however, in every detail, both as to hands and face and feet, but the entire body was covered with hair as the beasts are."

The band play two live dates in London later this month, at The Montague Arms on May 19, and at the Servant Jazz Quarters on May 22. They also appear alongside fellow purveyors of exceptional sonic destruction The Cosmic Dead on May 25 at Brighton's Green Door Store.
