There’s a new New Pornographers record coming in August

Illustration for article titled There’s a new New Pornographers record coming in August

The New Pornographers will release their first new album in four years on Aug. 26. Brill Bruisers is being released on Matador Records and finds the whole gang back together again, including breakout Pornographers contributors Neko Case and Destroyer’s Dan Bejar. The album’s title track is streaming below, and it definitely jibes with frontman AC Newman’s assertion that Brill is a “celebration record.”


A limited-edition multicolored “paint-splattered” version of Brill Bruisers is available for pre-order now. Fans who get in on the sale early will also get a 3-D poster and glasses.

The New Pornographers have a number of dates this summer and fall, all of which are listed below.
