Ahead of the release of their upcoming sophomore album Cavalcade, experimental post-rockers and electric guitar visionaries Black Midi have unleashed the record’s second single, Chondromalacia Patella.

Titled after a band member's knee injury, the fierce track is taken from the upcoming feature-length offering, which will be the four-piece's first LP since the release of their 2019 debut Schlagenheim.
