In January, the band announced that they would be releasing a new record this September – with the news being revealed in a teaser for a 12-part weekly podcast. The upcoming project will be their seventh studio album, and their first since 2016’s ‘Head Carrier’.
Coming a day after posting a clip captioned, “Ready?,” the legendary Boston four-piece today (June 1) posted a nine second clip to Twitter featuring a snippet of new music.
Over a roar of heavy guitars that build to a sudden silence, the clip features a picture of what looks like a church on top of a hill. There are also some ad-libs towards the end before the clip fades to black.
Watch the clip below:
Kicking off in September, the tour coincides with the release of the band’s new album – the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed ‘Head Carrier‘. Black Francis and co will be calling at Cardiff, Plymouth, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, London, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin before heading over the continent.
