Published Jan 31, 2011In recent months, Brooklyn, NY fuzz pop trio Vivian Girls have been busy with solo projects (see here and here) and lineup changes. Still, that hasn't stopped the group from signing to Polyvinyl and completing their third album. That collection is entitled Share the Joy, and we now have some firm details about the release.
It's due out on April 12 via Polyvinyl. You can see the album cover above and peruse the tracklist below. It was recorded at Rear House, the studio run by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods. He also engineered the album.
For a preview of what the band have in store, go here to download "I Heard You Say" for the price of an email address. It's a stomping rocker that's got all the hallmarks of Vivian Girls' signature sound: guitar grit, reverb-drenched harmonies and infectious pop hooks.
To support the release, the band will be hitting the road for a North American tour with the Black Lips. There are two Canadian dates: Montreal on April 15 and Toronto on April 16. Scroll past the tracklist to check out the schedule.
