If it feels like a while since any new music has arrived from the Dandy Warhols, you aren't mistaken. The storied Portland band haven't released a proper album since 2012's This Machine, but that's all about to change.
Today (January 7) the band announced that they have signed a deal with Toronto's Dine Alone Records for a new release. And while there are not a lot of details as to what that upcoming record might entail, the band have shared the new track "You Are Killing Me."
You can now dive into the new sounds from the Dandy Warhols, who offer up plenty of palm-muted riffage, ethereal backing coos and retro-pop charm on "You Are Killing Me." Check it out for yourself below, or pick up the track on iTunes.
For now, we'll close with this quote from Dine Alone label owner/founder Joel Carriere on his latest signing:
My first introduction to the Dandy Warhols goes back to when I was 21, and working at a record store. Good Will Hunting blew up and we were selling a ton of copies of the soundtrack. Not having a full appreciation for Elliott Smith yet, I didn't bother putting the soundtrack on when at work. When I saw the movie in the theatre, I had to know what song was playing in the background during the legendary scene when Will helps Chuckie with an arrogant MIT student. Since we didn't have access to the Internet, let alone Shazam back then, I had to wait to scan the tracklist. Boom! It was the Dandy Warhols and the song also happened to be on their LP The Dandy Warhols Come Down. I couldn't be more thrilled that this record store clerk is now working with a band that had such an impact.
