Los Angeles acid house/punk/electronic band Sextile have announced the release of their long-awaited new album ‘Push‘ and have shared their new single “New York“.
The 11-track album, inspired by the kind of pleasure-seeking music fans whose social calendar comprises both the punk show and the rave, will be out on September 15 via Sacred Bones Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Since emerging in 2015, Sextile have been a party-provoking force on the LA underground, capable of kicking up a riot with the raw-edged squall of a synth or the sharp-elbowed jerk of a guitar. They are now ready to rage with a serotonin-boosting new album, a new group dynamic, as well as faster BPMs, and an even wilder new direction. Recorded in Yucca Valley, Push bounces and bops at the fringes of hardcore dance music, with the hallmarks of drum & bass, gabber and trance illuminating the record like glow sticks at a ‘90s Fantazia rave.
Repping their place of origin, new single “New York” brings these musical touchstones off the page, guiding the album like an acid-soaked lodestar with its grinning nod to “Higher State of Consciousness” and a whirly gig of music-box synths.
Check out the album’s tracklist and watch the video for “New York“, below.
Sextile ‘Push’ Tracklist:
- No Fun

Push was inspired by the kind of pleasure-seeking music fans whose social calendar comprises both the punk show and the rave. Josh Wink, Iggy Pop, Goldie, and early XL Recording shave all been name checked as influences onPush, and the dance floor remains a constant presence.
