Exclusive Premiere: Eagle Twin — "Ballad of Job Cain Part II"

Here's the exclusive premiere of a new song by Eagle Twin.

The track, "Ballad of Job Cain Part II," is from the Salt Lake City-based duo's upcoming sophomore album, The Feather Tipped the Serpent’s Scale, which will be released later this month via Southern Lord.

The duo -- guitarist Gentry Densley and drummer Tyler Smith -- recorded The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale with Randall Dunn at London Bridge Studio. The finished product is packed with more than 50 minutes of the band's most mammoth material to date.

Speaking of which, "Ballad of Job Cain Part II" perfectly displays the duo's unique style, which has captivated fans since their inception in 2007. You can hear it via the SoundCloud player below.

Eagle Twin, who were named one of the Five Best New Artists for August 2012 by Spin magazine, are hitting the road in support of the new album. The trek will find the band ripping through a dozen cities in a counter-clockwise path down the West Coast with support from Salt Lake City's Gaza. You can check out all the dates below the SoundCloud player (including additional dates in Australia and New Zealand).

Keep up with the band at their MySpace page and at Southern Lord's website.
