Published Sep 27, 2016Coming off of last year's split 12-inch with Napalmpom, Canadian riff-master Ian Blurton's Public Animal have announced they're ready to blast out another full-length. The act's regally titled Palace Arms is out October 28 via Yeah Right! Records.
A press release explains that the latest collection from Public Animal features 10 new tunes that were recorded during a four-day session with Nyles Spencer at the Tragically Hip's Bathouse Studio near Kingston, ON. Blurton took the tracks home to Toronto's ProGold Studio to track overdubs and mix before sending the album off to Portland's Audiosiege facility to be mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Pentagram).
A full tracklisting has yet to be revealed by the band, but Palace Arms' lead-off single is called "It Don't Seem Right." The song will arrive ahead of the rest of the album early next month for a separate release, packaged together with an as-yet-undetailed April Wine cover.
To tempt listeners, the band have unveiled a pair of video teasers that were prepped by drummer Ryan Gassi. You'll find the clips down below.
Public Animal have a handful of Canadian dates coming up as well. In particular, a Palace Arms release show will be held at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern on October 28 and will feature a secondary set of Public Animal performing the soundtrack to '90s-made stoner flick Dazed and Confused. The covers set will also include guest appearances from members of Sect, By Divine Right, Controller Controller, Diemonds, Catl, Sloan, Limblifter and many more.
