It has been FIVE YEARS since Pinback’s last album, Autumn Of The Seraphs, and while the band hasn’t been completely silent (Rob Crow dropped a solo album in 2011; Three Mile Pilot graced us with a new one back in ’10), they have been missed. On Record Store Day 2011, Rob and Zach gave us a new single, “True North,” the second installment in the Information Retrieved 7″ trilogy, and now, they’ve announced a release date for Information Retrieved, the LP: 10/16/2012. The San Diego band’s fifth full-length will be released via Temporary Residence, their new label following the scaled-back operations of old homes Touch and Go and Absolutely Kosher. While you’re waiting, listen to “True North,” which will (presumably?) be featured on the new album.
