Guided By Voices (more by Tim Griffin)
GBV

The legendarily prolific Guided By Voices have announced another album coming out this year, not to be confused with the 20 track Motivational Jumpsuit that was released on 2/18. "Recorded during the sub-freezing Polar Vortex of 2014, the next GbV record is titled Cool Planet" and it's out May 18/19 via Fire Records. Listen to the track "Bad Love Is Easy To Do" below where you'll also find the full 18 song tracklist.

To celebrate, the band (Robert Pollard - vocals, guitar; Tobin Sprout - guitar, vocals; Mitch Mitchell - guitar; Greg Demos - bass; Kevin March - drums) will head out on the road to play some intimate shows including NYC's Bowery Ballroom on 5/23. Tickets for that show which Doug Gillard (ex-GBV) and Atomic Forces are opening, go on sale Friday (3/7) at noon.

All known dates (three of them), the new song, and a 'Funny Or Die' video for "Planet Score" from their less new album, below...

why do people think GBV is a jam band? they write songs, and tons of them, no jamming.

^ some commentators idea of a extremely lame joke

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2014 4:58 PM

Bob Pollard has written more songs than anyone else in the history of recorded sound.

I'm sure he is quite hurt by the comments in this thread made by total nobodies who will achieve zero in their life.

GBV doesn't "jam' and never will. They fucking rock! Turn off your phones and pay attention, you foolish minnows.
