Califone at BV-SXSW 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)

Earlier this year, Califone revealed that they had a new album in the works, and now that album's finally been announced. It's called Stitches and it will be out on September 3 via Dead Oceans. Take a listen to the title track, which is giving me serious David Bowie vibes, along with the artwork and tracklist, below.

Califone will be supporting the new album with a tour following their appearances at Chicago's Big Star "Third" tribute and Hopscotch. That tour hits NYC on September 15 at Littlefield. Tickets for the NYC show are not on sale yet but check Ticketfly for updates.

All dates are listed, along with the new song and album info, below...
