Mind Crawler is the new single from Uncle Acid’s acclaimed third album, Mind Control. It features an exclusive b-side, Get on Home - a brand new recording of a song originally written and recorded by Charles Manson.
The band have also premiered the new video for the single via The Quietus today  - directed by Marc Morris it is a paranoia-inducing sensory assault fully capturing sacrifice of social niceties whereby goat skulls, nuns, acid tabs and ritual sex sit alongside trash culture, exploitation movies, rolling news and grainy TV clips of Jim Jones and Charles Manson.
Uncle Acid will also embark on a full EU & UK arena tour as main support to the legendary Black Sabbath in November and December 2013.
Prior to the Black Sabbath shows, the quartet have also been confirmed to play this year’s Reading / Leeds festival.

"Brain melting, mind expanding stuff…" Clash Magazine

"A phantasmagoric feast of heavy nuggets" Mojo

"An inspired splicing of fuzz encrusted psych riffs and lunging granite-hewn grooves..." Uncut

"exhilarating metal psychedelia" Classic Rock 

"maybe the catchiest metal record since 1983…." Mojo 
"Mind Control simply oozes primordial power" Metal Hammer

"it's a classy formula they follow, a worthy trash culture heritage they borrow from, and their single minded fortitude of approach not to mention creepily cobwebbed signature sound renders them fit to annihilate a thousand laboured retro rock time wasters currently wearily treading the boards" Terrorizer

"It's such a colossal relief to be able to report that 18 months of insane hype hasn't dampened down any of Uncle Acid's evil, tuneful, hypnotic fervour and that this most Satanic, lysergic and mysterious of Cambridge's dark hearted sons, is still sounding like John Lennon channelling Charles Manson fronting Pentagram." The Quietus
Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats’ are the very antithesis of what it is to be a rock band in the 21st century and therefore quite brilliant.
Formed in Cambridge by media-shy frontman K.R. Stars, in an era of profile building, brand-expanding and over-exposure Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a cult genuine phenomena: taking rock music back to its ritualistic beginnings when pagan heathens would stomp out a dirt-rhythm and howl at the moon. When music was the carnal catalyst for orgiastic midnight reckonings.
Mind Control (2013) looked across the water for inspiration, primarily early Alice Cooper, MC5, Blue Cheer and Blue Oyster Cult and B-movie biker movies. It has been critically acclaimed right across the music press board, from Kerrang! to Mojo and NME. Because Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are many things to many people: a blues band, a metal band, a psychedelic band, a doom band. A cult.
The question of who and why and when still go largely unanswered and indeed become irrelevant when Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats plug in and play. Devotees throw themselves down at the feet. Declare allegiance to the twisted spirit sound. Offer themselves and their grandmothers for sacrifice to these devilish overlords. Because resistance, ultimately, is futile.
