Today, we're really excited to bring you '100 Years of Hermitage,' the first single from experimental post-hardcore act Omnitrigger. Obviously, we'd never offer our readers music from bands we don't like, but every once in a while, a real gem comes sliding across the desk that stands out from the rest. Ladies and gentlemen, Minneapolis quartet Omnitrigger.

If you ask us, they've accomplished just that. Given the strong introduction, we can only wonder what's to come from Omnitrigger. Grab '100 Years of Hermitage' below and keep up with the band's equally high-quality YouTube page here.
