Published Mar 30, 2009After winning over a lot of pop-loving hearts in Miracle Fortress, Graham Van Pelt is returning to his dance punk party crew Think About Life, who have given the heads-up on a new album and a tour.
Due out May 26 via Alien8, the Montreal outfit's forthcoming full-length has been given the title Family and will follow up on the guys' 2006 self-titled debut. And while there aren't many details yet on what we can expect from the new record, we do have a tracklisting, as well as a new video for the lead-off single "Wizzzard" (see below), which indeed features wizards.
For the tour dates, Think About Life will be road-testing the new material on several U.S. stops and trio of Canadian ones: Ottawa on May 22, Toronto on May 23 and Montreal on May 28.
Here's the album tracklisting and those dates:
2. "Havin' My Baby"
3. "Sweet Sixteen"
4. "Young Hearts"
6. "Set You on Fire"
8. "The Veldt"
9. "Nueva Nueva"
