The New Pornographers – “Brill Bruisers” + Brill Bruisers Album Details

It’s been four years since the last New Pornographers LP, Together, but they’ve just announced the details for its follow-up, Brill Bruisers, and shared the new album’s title track (with interactive artwork). The lineup behind Brill Bruisers is A.C. Newman, Blaine Thurier, Dan Bejar, John Collins, Kathryn Calder, Kurt Dahle, Neko Case, and Todd Fancey. The song is pretty much everything you want from the New Pornographers, which means it’s fantastic. Check it out, along with Brill Bruisers’ tracklist and New Pornos tour dates (some with Pains Of Being Pure At Heart), below.
