California based folk band The Mountain Goats have announced that they will be releasing a new album in October, entitled Transcendental Youth.
John Darnielle, the band's prolific frontman, made the announcement through a blog post on the band's website, in which he elaborates on some of the album's themes and also promises a lengthy tour in support of it. The blog post can be read below.
Darnielle also said this was the first record that they've actually recored "as a band", meaning that it was just him dictating everything. Though that's worked out perfectly fine in the past, I'm excited to see how this record sounds as a result of that.
