2018 continues to be a great year for aging indie fans (and I definitely count myself in that). Following on from last year’s ‘Get In The Car’ single (which came in very high in the annual Festive Fifty) and tour, the band have indeed announced new single, album and tour.
So first up, that new single: it’s the title track of their fifth album, All Nerve. You can buy or stream it here by following the link.
I finally saw the band in Glasgow last October – and very good they were, too. This time they’re coming to Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms, you can see tour dates here by following this link.
The album tracklisting is as follows:
- Nervous Mary
- 2. Wait in the Car
- All Nerve
- Walking with the Killer
- Howl at the Summit
- Archangel’s Thunderbird
- Dawn: Making an Effort
- Skinhead #2
- Blues at the Acropolis
Recording took place at Candyland, Dayton, Kentucky, with Mike Montgomery; Electrical Audio, Chicago, with Steve Albini and Greg Norman; and with Tom Rastikis at
Fernwood Studios, Dayton, Ohio. The artwork was done by Chris Bigg, who has worked with the Breeders since their first album, Pod.
All Nerve will be released on March 2nd on long-term label 4AD.
