Last month, Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Tobacco shared a frenzied track "Got Wet In The Bomb Shelter". Today, we have news that the previously released single, along with another new offering, the scuzzy, sludgy "Slaughtered By The Amway Guy", is part of a new album of rare and unreleased tracks called Ripe & Majestic. The compilation features Tobacco tracks stretching from 2007-2017, from his earliest days under the moniker all the way to his current output. The collection also includes an alternate mix of "Grape Aerosmith", one of two Beck collaborations from Tobacco's sophomore album Maniac Meat.

"Amway Guy" in question is a particularly rock and punk-infused track with some fuzzy, hard-hitting guitar, an aggressive, driving beat, and a Kill Bill-esque siren synth that shoots in about halfway through. According to the Rad Cult Bandcamp, some relevant tags for Ripe & Majestic include "fantasy trash" and "meatwave", so that should tell you all you need to know about what to expect.

Pre-order the album here, which is out August 25th. There are also Tobacco cyclops masks and enamel pins for sale via the link. See below for a few Tobacco tour dates as well, including a show opening for Nine Inch Nails.
