'…And Star Power' will be released on October 13
Foxygen have announced details of a new album.
The Californian band will follow up their 2013 debut ‘We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic’ with a 24-track, 82-minute-long album titled ‘…And Star Power’. It will be released on October 13.
On a promotional image put out by the band to announce the LP, they promise “a gaggle of guest stars” and “a svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom stompers. A cinematic auditory adventure for speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees and misfits.”
The band have also unveiled the video from the first track to be taken from the album, ‘How Can You Really’, which features singer Sam France causing havoc in an office. Watch it below.
Foxygen had a troubled 2013. Last summer, they were forced to cancel an appearance at FYF Fest in Los Angeles after singer Sam France broke his leg at a Minneapolis gig.
Back in March last year, the band also cancelled their UK and European summer tour, claiming that the “creative health” of the band depended on them not playing the gigs. The band’s publicist, however, confirmed that the band were not splitting up.
