Chemikal Underground have announced the final Arab Strap record will be released in the US next month.

The band’s version of a Best Of, ‘Ten Years Of Tears’ includes demos, B-sides, remixes as well as some new material. It’s out in the US on February 20.

The Scottish duo last year announced their break-up, with both Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffat pursuing solo projects. Moffat is gearing up for the release of his third electronic album entitled ‘Dip’ under the name L. Pierre. The LP is slated for a February 6 release in the US.


Middleton, meanwhile, is set to release his brand new album ‘A Brighter Beat’ on February 26 in the UK. No US release date has yet been set.
