CVB

Camper Van Beethoven will release their first new album in nine years, La Costa Perdida, which will be out January 22 via 429 Records. The record features original members David Lowery, Greg Lisher, Jonathan Segel and Victor Krummenacher and was produced by the band. You can watch a lyric video for the album's first single, "Northern California Girls," below along with album art and tracklist.

You can get an early taste of the album, plus classic CVB cuts, when the band goes out on the road this winter with Lowery's other band, Cracker. Some dates on the tour will only feature one band or the other, but the NYC stop at Studio 48 on January 19 will have both bands in tow. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

A list of all tour dates and song stream, below...

Love CVB but I hope everyone illegally downloads this new cd. Fuck You David Lowery and your nasty idiotic approach to this issue.

no, 11:55, you ARE hipster scum.

if you're referring to his letter to that bimbo at npr, david lowery is DEAD ON regarding the issue of illegal downloads.

ANYONE who thinks differently is a cheap, soulless piece of crap.

why don't you go to saudi arabia and steal a loaf of bread?

1:09, you sir are one of the dumbest people to comment on this site. Actually from the tone of your comment I would guess you are Lowery himself or one of his idiot friends.

While I agree that the girl who wrote the NPR blog post is equally stupid, David Lowery's response and further comment follow up's were wrong, unrealistic, antiquated and downright nasty.

Lowery is a'ite in my book. Wish I could go to this show. Those CVB/Cracker double bills are terrific fun.

Stage 48. Not Studio 48. Please edit.

Didn't they do this last year? At around the exact same time of year too? Or maybe I'm having deja vu...

5 guys who won't take shades off in their reunion-tour promo photo are 5 guys who are understandably not so psyched about this reunion tour.

What is studio 48?

"I Never Owned Any Music To Begin With" where she admitted having an iTunes library of more than 11,000 songs but having "only bought 15CDs in my lifetime."

That's just fucked, man. Yikes.

Other than that dumb intro, it's a solid tune.

Wait 11:55 am by your hipster file stealing logic aren't you then promoting his album? Cause you freeloaders always say that filsharing helps artists. So you're helping Lowrey?

This then contradicts the "Fuck You". I'm really confused.

By your own freeloading logic shouldn't you NOT upload and share his album?

Or do we finally have a freeloading file stealing idiot that admits that files haring hurts artists!

Either way this should be a good show. What show? Your brain exploding trying to rationalize this.

Lowery > the cunt from NPR

you got to roll is a great song.

Saw Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven in DC about a week ago and they followed the recent Lowery aesthetic: Each play about two or three of their great (classic) songs and then trundle-out an entire set of the watered down new material which nobody knows and which is interchangeable between both bands. Big disappointment.
