Highly-rated Bristol outfit Scalping have shared their new single 'Ruptured'. Take a listen above.

The track, out today via Council Records, is the best example yet of the band's irresistible blend of influences, layering disparate noise on top of a post-industrial beat, eventually boiling over into a straight-up colossal dance pump that continues to shift and evolve.
