Marnie Stern, the rocker known for her frantic and virtuosic guitar work, will release her fourth studio album, the Narnia-alluding The Chronicles Of Marnia, on March, 19, 2013 via Kill Rock Stars. After her old drummer Zach Hill took up with the confrontational and now label-less Death Grips, Stern looked to Oneida's Kid Millions to pick up the sticks. Stern describes the follow-up to her self-titled 2010 release as a more focused album with clearer vocal tracks and "fewer guitar parts," which is a pretty big bummer considering her guitar playing is so boss.

The album's first single, "Year Of The Glad," showcases her manic energy and pop sensibilities. A full tracklist is below.

3. Noonan
4. Nothing is Easy
