Citing sources at the Sonic Unyon pressing plant, Exclaim.ca is reporting that a “Apart By Horses”/”The Hollow Earth” 12″ comes out 9/22 on TBD Records.

In more official news, the Radiohead frontman’s “All For The Best,” that Mark Mulcahy cover we premiered last month, sees a 7″ release 9/7 via Mezzotint. It’s backed with Mulcahy’s original and limited to just 2,000 copies. Finally, you’ll wanna keep an eye out for The Age Of Stupid, a global warming docudrama playing in 444 (should we be paying attention to these numbers?) theaters nationwide on 9/21 followed by a live broadcast of a NY panel discussion with Kofi Annan and Gillian Anderson. There Thom Yorke will perform an acoustic version of the Stupid title track (via PASTE). Back to the 12″ rumor — those of you who think “Apart By Horses” sounds familiar are correct.
