On October 15th, acclaimed D.C. indie-rockers Dismemberment Plan will release Uncanney Valley, their first new album in 12 years. Now the band is celebrating the release of their new single, "Waiting," with some quirky audience participation: their brand-new website prompts fans to dial a band-related phone number (252-64-DPLAN), which leads to a stream of the track. 

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

"Waiting" finds the band in surprisingly bright territory, blending Travis Morrison's quirky vocals with snaky synths and a funky bassline. 

Uncanney Valley, the band's first full-length since 2001's Change, was announced  last month. The band first reunited in 2011 for a tour based around the reissue of their 1999 landmark album, Emergency and I.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
