'The Controller Sphere' is due out early next year

Of Montreal have announced that they will release a new EP in spring 2011.

Entitled ‘The Controller Sphere’, the EP will feature a number of songs which were due to appear on their upcoming new album ‘False Priest’, which is released on September 13.

“There’s three songs that we were initially going to put on ‘False Priest’ that we decided to cut at the last second,” frontman Kevin Barnes told Consequence Of Sound. “I haven’t decided which I want to put on there, but there’s a lot of material to choose from.”

Meanwhile, Of Montreal will hit the road on a tour of North America in September and will embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland in October.
