The Voidz Return With New Single ‘Prophecy of the Dragon’

    Julian Casablancas and the Voidz are back with a new song, ‘Prophecy of the Dragon’, their first since 2020’s ‘Alien Crime Lord’. The single arrives ahead of a series of European festival appearances in June, including Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Madrid. Listen to it below.

    In a statement about ‘Prophecy of the Dragon’, the band said:

    The track started with a very simple question… what would it feel like if God whispered into your ear “you are my most magnificent creature”. What would that feeling sound like? What would it’s bassline be? With that—The Voidz conch was blown, and we assembled from the various corners of the earth to which we had been summoned for previous quests. From the deserts of the Sahara, to the truck stops of the midwest – we reunited in California to answer this question.
    the response?
    …from the fiery bones of eternity,
    the dragon’s voice, awakened after millennia in waiting, spewed forth a sonic fist of impertinence in
    the shape of a New Pirate anthem,
    where nothing is what it seems, nor is it otherwise:
    —Prophecy Of The Dragon. 

    The Voidz’ last LP was 2018’s Virtue.
