Published Jun 19, 2013The Sadies began teasing fans with the prospect of a new LP last year and have now finally revealed their plans in full. The group's next set is called Internal Sounds, and it hits retailers September 17 through Outside Music.
As previously reported, the band hit up a Toronto recording studio with Gary Louris to work on their follow-up to 2010's Darker Circles, but the set was actually produced by singer-guitarist Dallas Good, who ensured the band took their time to explore their Internal Sounds.
"There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn't suffer from a deadline or budget," Good explained in a statement, adding, "We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for 20 plus days. By the end, we'd spent every dime we had and used up every favour. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn't want that this time."
A tracklisting has not yet been offered up, but the album apparently hones the Sadies' knack for psychedelia, as well as their country and western chops, and features a guest appearance from Buffy Sainte-Marie on closer "We Are Circling."
While that September release date is still a ways off, you can stream chicken-wire psych trip "The First 5 Minutes" down below, where you'll also find the band's summer and fall tour schedules.
