Prog-rock veterans Crack the Sky previewed their upcoming 18th studio album, Tribes, with the dark new song “Dear Leaders.”

Throughout the track, singer John Palumbo reflects on a troubling world. “Dear leaders, are you listening? / Dear leaders are you watching this?” he sings over droning, metallic guitars and swirling electronics. “Dear leaders, there’s something wrong with you / Dear leaders, can’t see what’s in front of you.”

You can hear the song, premiering exclusively with UCR, below.

Tribes, available to pre-order, is out tomorrow via Carry On Music. The 13-track album started to cohere soon after the group’s previous album of original material, 2018’s Living in Reverse.
