Columbus, OH's Saintseneca had been working on the followup to 2014's Dark Arc, and now it's officially announced. It's their third album total, titled Such Things, and due out October 9 via ANTI- Records. While Saintseneca has always seemed like mainly the focus of frontman Zac Little, the first voice you hear on lead single "Sleeper Hold" is Maryn Jones (also of All Dogs and Yowler). Eventually the harmonies come in and it's unmistakably a Saintseneca song. Listen and check out the tracklist below. That's the artwork above.

The band's tour with Yowler and The Sidekicks (also fronted by a member of Saintseneca) hits NYC on release day at Mercury Lounge (10/9). Tickets for that show are still available. The Sidekicks and All Dogs are also touring sooner, and playing NYC this weekend at Silent Barn (8/22).

All Dogs' new album Kicking Every Day will be out shortly after that show (8/28 via Salinas), and they recently put out its newest single "How Long." Listen to that below too.
