Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s have released details for what will be a truly hectic end to 2010.
For one, the Indianapolis based outfit will drop their third studio album, Buzzard, this September. Fear not though, music fans. They’re avoiding the logjam that is September 14th and releasing the album a week later, on September 21st. The record will come out via the band’s own label Mariel Recordings, with Redeye handling distribution.
Buzzard promises a “distinct evolution” from the previous double release, Animal/Not Animal. The new album began forming when singer/guitarist Richard Edwards left his hometown of Indianapolis behind after 24 years and headed to the Windy City. He took up residence in his new home, an abandoned cinema, where he began writing the new album. A few months later fellow Margot… members Tyler Watkins and Erik Kang, along with engineer Neil Strauch and producer/drummer Brian Deck, helped Edwards set up a makeshift studio and the recording began.
The recording itself took place exclusively at night, between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Several broken bones later and the album was done. We can judge for ourselves whether the rather unusual recording environment and schedule has finally captured the band’s ”powerful, captivating live show and defiantly Midwestern sound.”
Margot… will also take the album out on a fairly hectic US headlining tour, kicking off in Minneapolis (Sept. 17th) and winding up in Omaha (Nov. 23rd), with stops in just about every town and hamlet in between.
Tickets to select shows go on sale starting Friday, July 23rd via Ticketmaster.
