Published Feb 18, 2016Following a pair of cryptic teasers, electronic experimenters Holy Fuck have revealed some proper details behind their impending LP. Titled Congrats, it arrives May 27 via Innovative Leisure and Last Gang Records.
The album title had been hinted at earlier this month, when a teaser video came up on YouTube bearing the title "HOLY FUCK | CONGRATS | SPRING 2016." While a tracklsting has yet to be revealed for the band's next record, which follows 2010's Latin, a stream of the set's "Tom Tom" has surfaced online.

The record reunites Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt "Punchy" McQuaid, and Matt Schulz, with a press release noting that the foursome cut the record in a studio over the course of three days. Judging by a press release, the approach Holy Fuck take on Congrats may have been partially inspired by the band's time on the road.
"When you're sitting still in a van and staring out the windows, you start to dream about all the other things you want to do," Borcherdt said in a statement. "This album is exactly what we couldn't do then."
In addition to a recently announced appearance at this summer's Field Trip festival in Toronto, Holy Fuck have upcoming dates in Los Angeles and in Austin as part of SXSW. More dates are expected to be announced shortly.
02/25 Los Angeles, CA - Los Globos
03/15-20 Austin, TX - SXSW
07/04-05 Toronto, ON - Field Trip
