CSS, no longer a Sub Pop band, are set to release their third full length La Liberación on August 22 via V2/Cooperative/Downtown. The album features contributions from Ratatat, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream and Mike Garson (who provided piano on David Bowie's "Aladdin Sane"). Check out the new artwork and tracklist below.
CSS recently finished up a tour with Sleigh Bells, who also have an upcoming album in the works. They told Rolling Stone:
"Emotionally, it's a really heavy record," guitarist and producer Derek E. Miller says of the new tunes. "Even the early demos that we have now, a lot of the stuff that Derek has recorded, sounds more immense to me," says singer Alexis Krauss. "It sounds really huge, so there's going to still be tons of volume."Sleigh Bells play Bonnaroo this weekend and Lollapalooza later in the summer. CSS are keeping much more busy, though no more US dates to report yet..
All international CSS dates, and a set of pictures from the 5/15 CSS/Sleigh Bells/Princeton Bowery Ballroom show (we posted the Webster Hall show in a more timely fashion), with La Liberación artwork and tracklist, below...
