This spring, White Reaper will return with an album called The World’s Best American Band. The garage punks made a good case for such a self-proclamation on previous single “Judy French”, but their new title track may have just 110% sealed the deal — it’s time to hand out the trophies.

Ushered in by a jubilant round of applause, it’s a cut that succeeds in its lofty arena-ready aspirations. There are handclaps, bouncy and rubberized bass, and guitar riffs that slice and zigzag at all the best moments. This’ll be a knockout song to see live, so here’s hoping the CoSigned Kentuckians expand their upcoming tour schedule. Stream it down below.

The World’s Best American Band, the follow-up to 2015’s stellar White Reaper Does It Again, arrives on April 7th via Polyvinyl.
