The Avalanches already announced their return to live performance, and now the Australian production team has shared a new video teaser hinting at a new album and/or a documentary film. The video tracks the history of the group since the release of their landmark 2000 debut Since I Left You, compiling a number of press updates about an imminent new album from 2005 to the present. Confirmed and rumored collaborators Father John Misty, Ariel Pink, Danny Brown, Jennifer Herrema, and Kirin J. Callinan all make appearances, several of them confirming the existence of a new LP. And just when you think you’re watching an album trailer, a title card instead advertises a new film called Since They Left Us: What Ever Happened To The Avalanches? “coming soon… hopefully.” Watch below.
Now, they may or may not be finally releasing their album. There may or may not even be a real movie on the way. But something is afoot in Avalanches world that extends beyond a handful of reunion shows, so let’s all get our expectations way up and hope for the best.
UPDATE: “Frankie Sinatra” (Feat. Danny Brown) out this week?!
