August 21st might be many months off. ‘Course that doesn’t mean you need to sweat out the summer without hearing any new material from Vancouver’s rousing pop outfit (I hear they are a super group…), The New Pornographers
. Why, just today we got word that the fine folks at Matador
are offering up an initial taste of what’s to come.
From the forthcoming CD/LP, Challengers
, listen to “My Rights Versus Yours”
Also, the label has teamed up with a variety of retail outlets to offer its’ fourth installment of “Buy Early Get Now”. Order Challengers
a tad on the early side you can expect to be rewarded with a variety of added goodies (mp3s, posters, merch, contests, etc) to tide you over until the record “drops”. For more information, click HERE
Finally, the band will be playing a few shows this summer, highlighted by a July 4th show at NYC’s Battery Park
(Yes! Canadians celebrating the American Independence!) and an appearance at The Pitchfork Festival
in Chicago on July 15th.
