The New Pornographers Announce New Album After Four Years
In the 2000s, Canadian band The New Pornographers were critical darlings – and didn’t do too bad commercially, either. However, after 2010 release Together, members went their separate ways to embark on solo careers, but as of this week, a new album is in the works.
According to press statements, Brill Bruisers follows Together, and unlike its predecessor, has a more uplifting feel. AC Newman explained: “This is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that.”
Listeners don’t have long to wait, either. Reports say Brill Bruisers reaches stores by August 26.
Forming in 1999, The New Pornographers entered the music scene with 2000’s Mass Romantic – and had a cut included in the Queer As Folk soundtrack not long after. However, success in terms of chart ranks didn’t appear until 2005’s Twin Cinema, which reached No. 44 on the Billboard 200. This was followed by 2007’s Challengers and Together three years later.
Rather than make listeners wait for an official single to come out, the band put out a preview of music to come this week with the following video:
