Fake Fruit, announce their new album Mucho Mistrust, will be available on August 23rd via Carpark Records, ahead of the LP’s arrival, the band comprised of Hannah “Ham” D’Amato, Alex Post, & Miles MacDiarmid are sharing single/video, “Mucho Mistrust.” Mucho Mistrust was recorded live at the Bay Area’s Atomic Garden studio with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Home Is Where) – is a sly reference to a beloved Blondie lyric. Fake Fruit will be touring the West Coast this coming summer with Omni.

“Mucho Mistrust,” is simultaneously disorienting and direct, with clanging guitars from Post, off-kilter drums from MacDiarmid, and D’Amato snarling, “How you gonna blame me / when you could’ve done something about it / it’s not right / How you gonna marinate me / in shitty things overnight.” The song was written during a turbulent and transformational period for Ham, and this personal upheaval was channeled into the track. “There were big life changes and I was so close to boiling over,” says D’Amato. “I left a bad relationship, entered a more stable and loving one, got diagnosed with alopecia, and I’m turning 30 soon too. This song was a snapshot of how I got through a difficult year.” The video, directed and edited by Jimmy Whispers, is a tongue-in-cheek parody of televangelism, featuring MacDiarmid as a TV pastor in devil makeup and D’Amato as a guardian Angel to an older woman (played by her own grandmother).
