Boss Hogg — the blues-punk band featuring husband-wife pair Jon Spencer and Cristina Martinez — released three albums over the course of the ’90s, but haven’t put out any new music since 2000’s Whiteout, though they reunited for a few shows in 2008. Today, they announced the release of an EP called Brood Star — their first new music in 16 years — and shared a new track, “Wichita Grey.” The band has also said that they have a new full-length, titled Brood X, on the way.
