Given how much notice The Postelles have gotten on the road in the past year (they played All Points West, Lollapalooza, SXSW ’09 and ’10, and will appear at this year’s Bonnaroo), it’s surprising that they still haven’t released their debut album. That will change, though, when The Postelles drops on July 27th, through Astralwerks/Capitol Records.
The New York foursome have been working on their debut for the past couple years, a time period they also spent building a live reputation from small clubs to major festivals. They’ve also caught the attention of The Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., who loaned his skills to co-produce the record with the band.
Weve been working at this for quite a while and still have a long way to go,” said frontman Daniel Balk. ”But were so excited to release this album, to get out there and continue to tour and share our music and hopefully help some people have a little fun while were at it.
They certainly are continuing to share their music. This past March, The Postelles released a new EP, White Light. The effort’s title track can be download from the band’s official website.
