Next Wednesday's show at the Fillmore Miami Beach by Band of Horses caps off a pretty awesome April at the venue. The show also marks, however, a preview for fans of the ex-Seattle/now South Carolina band's third studio album, the upcoming Infinite Arms. It drops on Columbia/Fat Possum/Brown on May 18, but as a taster, the band and label are offering a free download of lead single "Factory." 

Much like the best of the band's older works, it starts out with sweeping strings and swirls slowly under a dreamy, romantic haze. Ben Bridwell sure has a gift for gut-stirring vocal melodies. Also, if you miss Deserter's Songs-era Mercury Rev, this is a good substitute. Get the download link after the jump. 

Band of Horses. 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 28. The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $24.50;
