"Vancouver-based indie rockers the New Pornographers will release their third album, Twin Cinema, on August 23rd. Fans will get a taste of new tunes, and a reworked lineup, on a mini-tour this month. While the band enjoys a large arsenal of players -- sometimes upwards of eight -- the newest member has a familial connection: Kathryn Calder, who sings and plays piano, is also frontman A.C. Newman's niece.

"Neko [Case] can't make the June shows, so Kathryn's going to be the girl," Newman says. "So we're going to be kind of like the Fiery Furnaces -- the relatives band [laughs].""
