Thee Oh Sees detail new album, Castlemania

on May 02, 2011, 2:05pm

Just over a year after the release of 2010’s Warm Slime, indie rockers Thee Oh Sees are set to release their seventh full length effort. Titled Castlemania, the album promises to capatalize on the band’s much talked about energy that has shaken the underground music scene of their native San Francisco. That is, balls-out, experimental garage rock.

With Castlemania, therein lies a lyrical message that inadvertently reminds us to remember the little things, at least according to frontman/guitarist John Dwyer. He adds: “I guess there is a theme going on in this record…songs about bad things, packaged in a summery record about getting numb to life and its little pleasures as you take it for granted with age.”

Castlemania is scheduled for release on June 14th via In The Red Records. An official tracklist has not been announced but the album will be a long one, totally 16 tracks. Below is a sample of the effort in the form of the album track “I Need Seed”.

To support the effort, Thee Oh Sees will also be touring heavily over the next few months. The month of May and beginning of June see them trek across Europe before heading back to North America  to prep appearances at Sled Island Festival and Woodsist Fest earlier this summer. Find all confirmed tour dates below the mp3 stream.
