of Montreal eye new EP, The Controller Sphere

on August 23, 2010, 3:25pm

of Montreal‘s latest studio, False Priest, arrives September 14th. That’s three weeks from now. Yet in a recent interview with Express Night Out (via Prefix), the band’s figurehead, Kevin Barnes, revealed that he’s already eying the release of another studio effort. In fact, he already has a title — The Controller Sphere – and release date — Spring 2011.

According to Barnes, the EP represents the final part of an ongoing trilogy that he first envisioned in 2007 and which was later realized in 2008’s Skeletal Lamping and the forthcoming False Priest. The songs on The Controller Sphere were written at the same time as the material on False Priest, and at least one came from the same sessions with producer Jon Brion.

“There’s three songs that we were initially going to put on False Priest that we decided to cut at the last second,” Barnes said. “I haven’t decided which I want to put on there but there’s a lot of material to choose from.”

More details as they become available. Until then, enjoy False Priest (via Polyvinyl) on September 14th and/or of Montreal on their currently ongoing North American tour.
