News on Teenage Fanclub, Cowboy Junkies & More
Veteran Scottish rock outfit Teenage Fanclub has signed with Merge, which will release the new album "Man-Made" on June 7. The 12-track set was recorded by John McEntire (Tortoise, the Sea & Cake) at his Soma Electronic Studio in Chicago. It's the follow-up to 2002's "Words of Wisdom and Hope," a collaboration with Jad Fair.
In the United Kingdom, "Man-Made" will be released May 2 on Teenage Fanclub's own PeMa label, to be followed on May 23 by the single "Fallen Leaves." The group will hit the road beginning May 6 in Belfast and hopes to tour North America later this summer. A show is also on tap tonight (March 31) in Glasgow.
