Best Coast is ready to follow up its 2010 Top Star-earning debut Crazy For You. The band’s sophomore LP, entitled The Only Place, will arrive on May 15th via Mexican Summer, as Pitchfork reports.

Produced by Jon Brion, the album spans 11 tracks and includes the previously revealed demo “How They Want Me to Be”, as well as “Up All Night”, which was previously released as a 7″ single in 2010, and the “Make Your Mine” b-side “Dreaming My Life Away”. A press release describes the end result as comprising the feelings of “uncertainty” and “self doubt,” while front woman Bethany Cosentino previously told Pitchfork that the album was “grown-up” and “seriously emo”.

In support of The Only Place, Best Coast has mapped out a bunch of tour dates for this spring and summer. You can find the complete schedule, along with the album’s tracklist below.
