The Pineapple Thief return this year with a new album called Dissolution. The LP will be out on August 31 through Kscope and features Gavin Harrison (ex-Porcupine Tree/King Crimson) on drums.
The band also debuted 'Far Below', the first song off Dissolution:
Regarding the tune, front man Bruce Soord mentioned:
“Far Below began life as a bit of a jam session between myself and Gavin. Gavin had this really distinctive 6/8 rhythm going and it didn't take long for me to find the melodies. And so a song was born. Is it my favourite track from the album? Impossible to judge as the album covers so much ground. But it does showcase what the four of us want The Pineapple Thief to be about and I for one can't wait to play this one live."

Psychedelic rock act, Spiritualized are returning with a new album this autumn. After 6 years, Jason Spaceman & Co. announced the release of And Nothing Hurt, due out on September 7. The front man mentioned this might be the band's last album:
“I was quite sincere about that and I still feel like it might be the case. It was such hard work. I found myself going crazy for so long. It’s not like there’s no coming back, I’m fine now… it’s just such a hard thing to do, to make a record like this on your own.”
Regarding the recording sessions, he mentioned:
"Making this record on my own sent me more mad than anything I’ve done before. We’d been playing these big shows and I really wanted to capture that sound we were making but, without the funds to do, I had to find a way to work within the constraints of what money I had. So I bought a laptop and made it all in a little room in my house…

Indie-rock band Manchester Orchestra have unveiled a new track entitled "I Know How To Speak." The song was apparently destined to make the final tracklist for A Black Mile to the Surface, but was not finished in time. Frontman Andy Hull released the following statement about the song on the band's official Facebook page:
"This song was originally and roughly formed a few years ago, about the impending weight of the future; it almost made it onto Black Mile, but hadn't fully formed yet. We spent some solid time this year revisiting and reworking and recording the song into its final state. I found it inspiring to work on this song right before the birth of my son, which was and is beautiful impending weight." -Andy
