Lemuria at House of Vans in 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Lemuria

As mentioned, Lemuria are releasing their new album, The Distance Is So Big, on June 18 via Bridge Nine. They've just revealed the first taste of the album, "Brilliant Dancer," a cut that opens up with some characteristically Lemurian pop, but soon breaks out into a grungy chorus in a way that feels like relatively new ground for the band. Listen to the song below (via SPIN).

Lemuria will support the new album on a previously discussed tour which hits the NYC area for shows on May 24 at Maxwell's (tickets) and May 25 at Shea Stadium (no advance tix).
