The world is terrible and is slowly eating away at my faith in humanity, but this news staves off the awful for a good while. A few weeks ago, a certain handsome gentleman deserving of your respect and admiration wrote about a new video from Telethon’s upcoming album. That album, “The Grand Spontanean: A Tale Told in Five Acts,” is unleashed on this Friday, September 29th.

Unlike the beer, these guys are definitely Milwaukee’s Best (along with Direct Hit! and if you disagree I’ll knife-fight you behind a poorly lit Kwik-Trip parking lot and sacrifice your lifeless body to Quesobratza, the upper-midwestern god of cheese curds and sausage).

In the meantime, Telethon has been kindly enough to spread the good love of their opus. Check out the interview at Billboard, and do yourself a favor and listen to the album below.
