Oxford Collapse announce fourth album details

And the Brooklynites map US tour

Oxford Collapse have announced the release of their fourth album, ‘Bits’, slated to hit shelves August 5 via Sub Pop.

The fourth album from the Brooklyn-based trio, ‘Bits’ follows 2006’s ‘Remember The Night Parties’ and is the second release from the band on the Seattle imprint.

The band road-tested much of the new record while on their recent stint on the road with borough-buddies We Are Scientists, and recorded the album in chunks over the course of last year with Eric Emm at the Brothers Studios, and Chad Matheny in “spaces all over town”.

The track listing for ‘Bits’ is:

‘Electric Arc’

‘The Birthday Wars’


‘Young Love Delivers’

‘Back of the Yards’

‘A Wedding’


‘For the Winter Coats’

‘Men and Their Idea’
