Published Oct 14, 2019Space rock greats Duster have announced their first album of new material in nearly 20 years. Their self-titled third album, Duster, is due in December via Muddguts.
The band announced the new record last night (October 13) via an Instagram post. A pre-order page describes the album as "features "12 brand new tracks from the inimitable gods of tranquility." No tracklist has been announced.
Duster is currently available to pre-order on black vinyl. A pre-order exclusive package including Duster on pink vinyl and a 7" postcard flexi has already sold out. While no proper release date has been officially announced, physical copies of Duster are set to ship on December 13.
Duster was formed in San Jose in 1996 by Clay Parton and Canaan Dove Amber. The duo were joined by Jason Albertini during the recording of their debut album, 1998's Stratosphere, and the trio later recorded 1999 EP 1975 and their 2000 sophomore album Contemporary Movement before breaking up in 2001. Band members later appeared in projects like Eiafuawn, El Buzzard and Helvetia.
The trio reunited in 2018, followed by a series of live shows and a comprehensive box set reissue, Capsule Losing Contact, by the Numero Group in early 2019, including both albums and a compilation of EPs, singles and rarities.
Duster is available for pre-order here.
