Guided by Voices will release 32-track double LP August by Cake on April 7. Not only is it the biggest Guided by Voices record yet (first-ever double LP), it also is Robert Pollard’s 100th album! It’s all the more impressive when you think that’s just since 1986 (GBV’s Forever Since Breakfast being his first). This one was made with the current lineup — vets Doug Gillard and Kevin March, relative newbies Bobby Bare Jr and Mark Shue — with all members contributing songs. Listen to “Hiking Skin,” which sounds like classic GBV, and check out the LP’s tracklist below.

Having just played NYC on New Year’s Eve, Guided by Voices will be back on the road this Spring, touring around their appearances at Coachella 2017. New new NYC shows have been announced but all dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, current GBV member Bobby Bare Jr plays NYC’s City Vineyard tonight (1/25) with Elvis Perkins.
