Pepper? Though the details are scarce, the band have revealed that their next platter, titled Aufheben, will arrive this spring.
According to a press release, bandleader Anton Newcombe and his ever-changing cast of contributors will deliver the disc May 1 on 'a' Records/Redeye Distribution. A tracklisting and cover have yet to pop up for the album, but if all goes according to plan, the band should be trotting out the new numbers on their upcoming North American tour.

Don't fret if your city is not listed yet, though, the press sheet assures that more tour dates will be unveiled in the near future.
