It’s been years since rockers The Exploders released new music, but Orche.Stratos.Pheric makes it sound like it’s been decades.

The Exploders were a cause celebre of the throwback-rock scene back in the late ’00s, piling up hooky riffs and at one point being Rove‘s house band.

Out of action for a few years, Paul and TJ return with the epic new album Orche.Stratos.Pheric, which sounds like a lost classic of ’70s power pop and fuzz rock.

We discuss its mythological underpinnings, the country shed where they recorded, the band as a five-piece (with touring members of Jet, 67 Special and the Sleepy Jackson), and what the hell happened in the last few years.
