Time to turn your volume way up and jam Mean Jean’s new single, “Nite Vision,” premiering over at the A.V. Club! Billy Jeans remarks, “With an original demo dating back to 2008, “Nite Vision” has already outlived every relationship I’ve ever had. This little 4-chord smasher has finally been given its chance to shred and serves as a fitting precursor to our forthcoming album. Play it loud!” Backed by two more brand new tunes that are exclusive to this single, and if you have any vision at all, you’re gonna want to pre-order your copy right now!
