Band Of Horses Infinite Arms Coming This May On New Label

Band Of Horses have left Sub Pop and arrived at Ben Bridwell’s Brown (+ Fat Possum/Columbia) for their new album Infinite Arms. Visually, though, they haven’t strayed too far from Cease To Begin’s nightscape. There’s less water and more mountainous swirls, but like the previous cover image, the sky was captured by photographer Christopher Wilson. The band produced Infinite with help from Phil Ek. It was recorded over 16 months in various locations featuring a beefed-up lineup that includes the core of Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, and  Ryan Monroe with longtime touring members Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds providing additional hands. As a nod to the new lineup, Bridwell is quoted as saying “in many ways, this is the first Band of Horses record.” But we know it’s actually their third.

Infinite Arms is out 5/18 via Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia. They’re touring in support of it. More dates TBA soon, so keep watch at bandofhorses.com. For now:
