The album will be released under their own imprint, Collected Works.
“This is the World of the Theatre” premiered on Noisey and can be found on their upcoming album. The group also decided to premiere another new song in an interesting way through. “High Ticket Attractions” was premiered via an interactive lyric video that was directed by Chris Shier. Whiteout Conditions is available for pre-order and it comes along with a glow in the dark poster for those who order
A.C. Newman had this to say about the new music, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”
