Detroit experimentalists Wolf Eyes are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, and will release a new album, Dreams in Splattered Lines on May 26 via Disciples. Check out album art and tracklist below.

"We started by continuing to explore the ideas of short dense sound collages that had similar behaviors to 'hit singles,'" says the group's Nate Young of the album. "Using a lot of ideas that we established on the 'Difficult Messages' series, we started to look at hit songs like terrariums: folding the idea of music and sound happening inside sound environments we created in the studio. The record starts with a Car Wash that includes a Short Hands track playing on the car radio while waves of white noise and contact microphones are plunging into water buckets. The track is then played in a car while going through an actual car wash and finally layered and mixed in the studio."

You can listen to three tracks from Dreams In Splattered Lines, and watch a trailer for the album, below.

Wolf Eyes will also be on tour this year, beginning with a 25th anniversary residency in Ypsilanti, MI this month, and Basilica, Hudson's 24-Hour Dronefest with Liturgy, Laraaji, Yuka C Honda, Raven Chacon and more. All dates are listed below.
