Yesterday, details emerged on Hop Along‘s new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog, which will be out April 6 via Saddle Creek. As hinted, lead single “How Simple” is out today. It’s another dose of Hop Along’s trademark songwriting style, and here’s what singer Frances Quinlan says about it: “People romanticize the idea of finding themselves, but when they do, at least in my experience, it can be really difficult. You see how you fail others and how others fail you.” Listen below. The album was self-produced and recorded by the band’s guitarist, Joe Reinhart, with help from Kyle Pulley. It’s also got guest vocals from Thin Lips singer Chrissy Tashjian, and string arrangements.

Hop Along have also announced a tour, including their largest headlining NYC show yet on May 30 at Brooklyn Steel. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/26) with a BrooklynVegan presale starting Wednesday (1/24) at noon. Check back here Wednesday morning for the password. All dates are listed below.
