LOOK: The New Pornographers Release New Single, Announce New Album + Tour Dates

After four very long years, The New Pornographers have returned with their much-anticipated sixth album, Brill Bruisers. To commemorate the announcement, they've shared the opening title track that comes fully-equipped with interactive artwork. "Brill Bruisers" is a sparkling track packed with melodic "ooh"s and "ahh"s that carry you through rocking chords and powerful drum beats.

The album reunites our favorite Pornographers: Neko Case, Dan Bejar, Blaine Thurier, John Collins, Kathryn Calder, Kurt Dahle, Todd Fancey and, of course, A.C. Newman. Produced by Newman and Collins, the album is an audible reflection of the weight the band's lead-singer has admittedly lifted off his shoulders. It's an optimistic yet thoughtful offering from a band that has yet to show any signs of pretention. 

 

Brill Bruisers is out August 26. You can order a limited edition "paint splattered" version of the album here. Listen to the title track and check out the sweet album art below!
