What's up with New Idea Society

After an 8 year hiatus, New Idea Society are back with two new songs. Formed by Mike Law (Wild Arrows, EUCLID) and Stephen Brodsky (Mutoid Man, Cave In), the band currently also includes drummer Alan Cage (Quicksand) and Brian Cook as a guest bassist (Russian Circles, Botch, SUMAC).

This time around, the band has a heavier feel that may be familiar to fans of Brodsky's and Law's other work.

Listen to "Now Is Here" below. Another new song, "Wave Goodbye," will premiere soon, the band says.
