Modular is proud to announce that West Australian psych warriors Tame Impala will return with their new album Lonerism, to be released globally this October 2012.
Again recorded and produced almost entirely by Kevin Parker in studios, planes, hotels and homes around the world, and mixed by the trailblazing Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips / MGMT), Lonerism’s sound is not so much reinvented as completely redrafted and stretched way, way out. It’s a quantum leap forward for the band, the seeds of which were sown shortly after their debut album Innerspeaker was mixed.
Featuring twelve new songs, Lonerism’s most apparent advance is in its synthesizers – there’s swathes of them cutting melancosmic shapes across almost every track. There’s still the searing guitar lines, bouldering drums, free bass and of course Parker’s voice, but now there’s heavily mournful pads and sunshine lead lines from an army of analogue explorers in the mix.
Lonerism follows on from their 2010 Innerspeaker debut which was welcomed by fans the world over, and won Tame Impala many critical nods including both Rolling Stone Australia & Triple J’s Album Of The Year, placing highly in Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Urban Outfitters’ End Of Year lists, as well as a touring schedule with highlights such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Big Day Out, Roskilde, Summersonic and T In The Park.
Tame Impala can also unveil that their first single from Lonerism, ‘Elephant’ will be making its official premiere later in July.
Stay tuned for more Lonerism news, including artwork, tracklisting, and pre-order info to be announced shortly, including CD, vinyl, digital, and Deluxe Box Set details. Tame Impala are also confirmed to appear at Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Splendour In The Grass & Parklife Festivals, and will be touring throughout Europe and the United States later this year.
