Published Jun 29, 2012Tilly and the Wall haven't given their fans much in the way of new music lately, but the Omaha-based Bright Eyes cohorts have finally announced the follow-up to their 2008 album o. The LP is called Heavy Mood, and it will be out on October 2 via Conor Oberst's Team Love imprint.
The indie pop band recruited some notable friends to help out: Bright Eyes member Mike Mogis serves as producer, while guest contributors include Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Clark Baechle (the Faint) and Shane Aspegren (the Berg Sans Nipple).
According to a press release, this "fierce" collection is "the band's most adventurous album to date." It apparently found Tilly and the Wall branching out stylistically by "blending their signature stomps, taps and hand claps with electronic beats, using electric guitars to build thicker walls of sound, and embracing a fearless approach where love and aggression equally thrive."
Scroll past the tracklist to hear the new single "Love Riot." Also expect a music video for "Defenders" and a tour announcement to follow.
