Published Jan 25, 2013After busying themselves with an EP series that lasted throughout 2012, UK indie pop sensations British Sea Power have announced plans to release a fifth album.
The follow up to 2011's Valhalla Dancehall, the latest British Sea Power effort is called Machineries of Joy. A track with that name appeared on one of their 2012 EPs, which could serve as an indicator that they'll be using material from those releases for the new full-length.
There aren't many details on the release just yet, but we do know that it'll be out in the UK on April 1 via Rough Trade. Presumably, that means it'll be out in North America on April 2.
UPDATE: The album is due out on April 9 in North America.
The band are also working on scheduling some tour dates. For now, they've got a run of UK shows, the schedule for which can be viewed here.
