Yesterday, David Bazan released a cover of Now, Now's "Thread" from his upcoming split with Kevin Devine, which will see both artists covering Now, Now songs. Today, he gave an update on Pedro the Lion's new album, their first since 2004, which is due out on Polyvinyl. Bazan says it's called Phoenix, due in January or February 2019, and that they just finished tracking it this morning. He writes:

Exciting news! Stay tuned for more.

As mentioned, Pedro the Lion are touring with H.C. McEntire, including NYC shows on Bowery Ballroom on 8/14 (tickets) and Music Hall of Williamsburg on 8/15 (tickets).
