Published Oct 17, 2012Mice Parade have been steadily rolling out albums since the late '90s, and the Adam Pierce-led project will be returning in 2013 with another record. Following up 2010's What It Means to Be Left-Handed, this latest LP is called Candela, which will arrive January 29 through FatCat Records.
Recorded and mixed by Pierce himself, along with Jeremy Backofen (Frightened Rabbit, the Felice Brothers), Candela is named after a flamenco bar in Madrid, Spain. It reportedly finds the project's influences getting evermore varied.
A press release explains, "Candela represents Mice Parade's most adventurous release and its closest to pure pop music. From the dense, rhythmically-intense 'Currents' and its funk brio to the devastatingly pretty drum kit/electric guitar interplay of 'Pretending,' there are plenty of heady moments of pop brilliance bubbling amongst elements of abstract, restrained eloquence."

Mice Parade have a handful of tour dates booked in Europe, but they plan to tour in North America soon as well.
