DOWNLOAD: Cymbals Eat Guitars - "Keep Me Waiting" (Hooray for Earth Remix) (MP3)

Cursive at BV-SXSW in 2009 (more by Leia Jospe)
Curisve

Cursive will release their seventh full length album, I Am Gemini, on February 21 via Saddle Creek. The album was recorded with Matt Bayles, and according to a press release, tells the story of "Cassius and Pollock, twin brothers separated at birth. One good and one evil, their unexpected reunion in a house that is not a home ignites a classic struggle for the soul, played out with a cast of supporting characters that includes a chorus of angels and devils, and twin sisters conjoined at the head." The press release also notes that it's the first album frontman Tim Kasher wrote with the complete story in mind, with the lyrics having been written in order from song 1 through song 13. The album artwork and tracklist is below.

Rolling Stone premiered an exclusive download for album track, "The Sun and Moon," yesterday (1/2). You can download it at RS's site and stream it below. Like the material on 2009's Mama, I'm Swollen, the song hearkens back to the riff heavy work of Cursive's earlier stuff, before they began experimenting with dynamic string and horn arrangements.

Cursive is going on tour in support of the new album in the upcoming months. They've already announced a run in February and March with Ume, Mount Moriah, and Virgin Islands. Now they've revealed a second run with Cymbals Eat Guitars and Conduits that includes NYC shows on April 3 and 4 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/6) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/4) at noon.

Speaking of Cymbals Eat Guitars, their song, "Keep Me Waiting," was just remixed by Hooray For Earth. Download that remix at the top of this post and stream it below.

I thought Ugly Organ was a concept album also, if so I guess he didn't have the story all written out beforehand?

Very underrated live band. Love almost all their work. This song is kinda weak though, and I liked Mama I'm Swollen.

Why?? Ugly Organ and the Burst and Bloom ep were the best things they ever put out. BRING GRETTA BACK!

The Great Decay is a cool song, it was also the background music for "The Emo Game"
