A year and change after releasing Lousy With Sylvianbriar, Athens glam crew of Montreal return in a couple of months with the new LP Aureate Gloom. According to frontman Kevin Barnes, the album is both inspired by the “mid to late ’70s music scene in New York” and by his own recent divorce. The band already shared first single “Bassem Sabry,” and now they’re letting us hear “Empyrean Abattoir,” which moves from ADD psychedelic jangle to bratty glam-punk so quickly and effortlessly that you almost don’t register it happening. Listen to it below.
Aureate Gloom is out 3/3 on Polyvinyl.
