    In August, The New Pornographers will return with their first new album in four years. Entitled Brill Bruisers, the 13-track effort serves as the follow-up to 2010’s Together. It will see release on August 26th via Matador Records.

    The album was recorded primarily at Little Blue in Woodstock, NY and at JC/DC Studios in Vancouver, BC, with additional recording in Austin, Brooklyn, and Vermont. The band’s recording lineup included A.C. Newman, Neko Case, Dan Bejar, Blaine Thurier, John Collins, Kathryn Calder, Kurt Dahle, and Todd Fancey.

    Newman said of the release: “This is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that.”
