by Bill Pearis
NYC trio Sunflower Bean, who have been playing almost nonstop for a couple years now, have announced details of their debut album, Human Ceremony, which will be out via Fat Possum on February 5. It was produced by onetime Friends bassist Matthew Molinar and that’s the cover art above. The first single from the LP is the driving, riffy “Wall Watcher” which you can stream it below.
Sunflower Bean will be on tour with The Vaccines and Palma Violets in the UK and Europe starting next week, and have also announced a NYC record release show which happens February 25 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/13) at noon.
