The Mountain Goats are currently streaming their new album, Transcendental Youth, at Rolling Stone. According to liner notes penned by comedian John Hodgman, the band’s 14th LP is “full of songs about people who madly, stupidly, blessedly won’t stop surviving, no matter who gives up on them…. it is a very good album and has many more instruments on it than those early tapes, including Peter Hughes on bass, Jon Wurster on drums, and, for the first time, a full horn section.” The album will be released on October 2nd via Merge.

Also, the band has expanded its fall tour into November and December. CoSigned musician Matthew E. White will once again serve as opener.  Peep the full itinerary below and amend that early Christmas wish list of yours.
