NEW ALBUM WHITEOUT CONDITIONS OUT NOW VIA DINE ALONE
FREE SHOW, FRIDAY JUNE 8, AT TORONTO’S YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE FOR 15TH ANNUAL BLOCK PARTY
This Friday, The New Pornographers will take the stage for a free show at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square for the 15th annual Block Party. More information can be found at http://www.ydsquare.ca.
Of writing the new album, out now via Dine Alone, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “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.” Newman recently discussed the new album and the band’s 18-year career in a series of Salon Talks.
Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers. The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music First Listen Live concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both Conan and the Late Show with David Letterman.
