Dry Cleaning are back, following up their great debut album with Stumpwork, which will be released on October 21 via 4AD. Preorder it on white vinyl. Like New Long Leg, the band made the new album with John Parish at Rockfield Studios in Wales, but they had more time to make this one, which allowed for more experimentation and exploration. The rather amazing cover art was created by design team Rottingdean Bazaar, who worked on Dry Cleaning's "Scratchcard Lanyard" video, and photographer Annie Collinge. Check that out along with the albun's tracklist below.

The first single off the album is "Don't Press Me," which vocalist/lyricist Florence Shaw says came about "because I was trying to write a song to sing to my own brain, ‘You are always fighting me / You are always stressing me out.’” The hand-animated video by Peter Millard is terrific and you can watch that below.

Dry Cleaning will tour the Midwest this summer while here for Pitchfork Fest, and they'll be back to play Primavera Sound Los Angeles in September. All date are listed below.
