Indie rock supergroup Filthy Friends — spearheaded by Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker and former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck — have finally solidified plans to release their debut album, Invitation, due out in late August.
We first heard from the band, which also features Kurt Block, Scott McCaughey, and Bill Rieflin, back in October with their song “Despierta,” as well as two Record Store Day exclusive tracks “Any Kind Of Crowd” and the Roxy Music cover “Editions Of You.”
Today’s album announcement comes with the band’s first full-fledged single, “The Arrival,” a no-holds-barred two-minute burst of energy featuring Tucker’s signature vocal howl. Check it out below.
Invitation is out 8/25 via Kill Rock Stars.
