As previously tipped here, twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin tapped Death Cab For Cutie guitarist Chris Walla to produce the album.
"They wanted something that was a little bit grittier," Walla told Billboard.com in January. "I guess there's like three or four songs we pretty much built on the demos, and three or four more where we've pulled elements from them. The rest, we started from scratch on."
DCFC drummer Jason McGerr, AFI bassist Hunter Burgan and the Rentals' Matt Sharp also contributed to the upcoming release. "The Con" is the follow-up to 2004's "So Jealous," which peaked at No. 26 on the Top Heatseekers chart.
The group is planning a series of small club performances in July and August, plus a larger headlining North American tour in October.
Here is the track list for "The Con":
"I Was Married"
"Relief Next to Me"
"Knife Going In"
"Are You Ten Years Ago"
"Back in Your Head"
"Hop a Plane"
"Burn Your Life Down"
"Like O, Like H"
"Dark Come Soon"
"Call It Off"
