Houndmouth Unveil Sophomore LP, Premiere New Video

Houndmouth Unveil Sophomore LP, Premiere New Video
Houndmouth got a fair amount traction with their debut album, 2013's From the Hills Below the City, which earned them major festival gigs and late-night television appearances. Now, the Indiana roots rockers are hoping to find similar success with the follow-up, as Little Neon Limelight will be out on March 17 on Rough Trade.

From the sound of things, the Dave Cobb-produced album isn't too radical of a departure for the group, since a press release promises more of their "signature four-part harmonies" plus the "gritty foot-stomping rock swagger of their live shows."

That being said, frontman Matt Myers has apparently undergone a lot of personal growth since the debut, and he said of the new record, "The inspiration falls close to the struggle of figuring out exactly what it means to be a man, let alone an artist."

The arrangements reportedly range from acoustic numbers to "need-in-the-red" garage rock.

The tracklist is below. Scroll past that (plus Houndmouth's U.S. tour schedule) to watch a music video for the atmospherically swimming alt-country number "Sedona." The acoustic folk ballad "For No One" is also below.

The album can be pre-ordered from Rough Trade's webstore.
