Guided By Voices will return in November with their third album of 2012. And that’s just the beginning — the band plans to continue issuing a new album every six months (!), reports Rolling Stone.

The Bears for Lunch serves as the follow up to January’s Let’s Go Eat at the Factory and June’s Class Clown Spots a UFO. It spans 19 tracks and is described by guitarist Tobin Sprout as reminiscent of the band’s guitar-heavy 1996 LP, Under the Bushes. Sprout said, “Under the Bushes was more longer, developed songs, and that’s kind of what this one is.”

The band will begin work on their next LP, English Little League, in August, and then tour the country the following month. Needless to say, Robert Pollard is living up to his title.

01. King Arthur the Red
02. The Corners are Glowing
03. Have a Jug
