The newest material will be recorded in upstate New York during the band’s scheduled summer tour. As well, the group will be releasing a new 7” with ‘Jennifer'/'New Pop’ through Matador Records, which will be available May 22 via the company’s Going Home Alone subscription series.
Details on the record’s specifics, including a name and release date, aren’t yet available. Stay tuned for future information.
