Philly shapeshifters mewithoutYou will follow Ten Stories with their sixth album this year, and to release it they signed with fast-rising label Run for Cover who have been killing it lately with Pity Sex, Makthaverskan, Tigers Jaw, Cloakroom and so much more. Here's what the label said about the signing:

We could not be more excited to announce Run For Cover has signed the legendary mewithoutYou. We will be releasing the bands 6th LP (produced by Will Yip) this summer, which is the incredible follow up to 2013's Ten Stories. The band's forthcoming LP is a carefully focused and personal album that spans the band's impressive career. From the frightened intensity of Catch Us For the Foxes and [A -> B] Life to the subdued and urgent Ten Stories, the band has truly created an album that complements and expands on their incredible 15 year existence.

The new album's called Pale Horses and it will be out on June 16. As mentioned in the quote above, it was prodcuced by Will Yip, who's recently worked on great albums by Braid, Title Fight, Pianos Become the Teeth and many more. Check out the album trailer below.

mewithoutYou are playing NJ's Skate & Surf festival in May, and after that they'll go on a tour with Foxing, another band with punk rock roots and art rock tendencies. The first leg also has Lithuania (mem Dr. Dog) opening, and the second leg has alt-popsters Field Mouse. (Both Field Mouse and Lithuania also open select dates of the Hop Along tour, and Hop Along not long ago opened for mewithoutYou.)

The run with Field Mouse hits NYC on July 17 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/17) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/15) at noon.

All dates are listed, with the tour flyer, album trailer, and some videos from the bands on the tour, below...
