New Pornographers Announce 'Brill Bruisers' Album, Share New Song & Tour Dates
The New Pornographers are finally back. Four years since the release of their last album (2010's "Together") the power-popping supergroup today announced plans to release its sixth studio album -- titled "Brill Bruisers" -- Aug. 26 via Matador.
Check out the title track below, via an interactive doodling app to go along with the luscious vocal melodies from A.C. Newman and Neko Case.
Speaking of core members Newman and Case, the entire, indie star-studded lineup took part in the creation of "Brill Bruisers," including the other main songwriter, Destroyer's Dan Bejar.
And it certainly seems like this will be a happy album. Calling it a "celebration record," Newman says via press release, "After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that."
They also announced a bunch of 2014 tour dates, most of which include openers the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, making for a match made in pop heaven.
