Crocodiles Announce 'Endless Flowers' LP, Share New Single
Published Feb 21, 2012Crocodiles have put out two LPs, plus an EP, since 2009, and it looks as if the San Diego fuzz-lovers aren't planning on slowing down anytime soon, since they just announced plans to release their third full-length this year.
Entitled Endless Flowers, it's scheduled to come out in Europe on June 4 through Germany's Souterrain Transmissions. While we still don't know much about the album (and the North American release details are still up in the air), you can get a taste the band's new material in the form of the single "Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9)," which is streaming at the bottom of the page. Clearly, Crocodiles haven't lost any of their affection for noise-soaked psychedelic pop.
UPDATE: The album is due out in North America via French Kiss on June 5. The tracklist is below.
If you like what you hear, the single will be out as a seven-inch on March 27 via French Kiss. The release will include the B-side, "Fascist Cops."
In the coming weeks, Crocodiles will spread the word of the forthcoming release with a North American tour. In addition to a number of U.S. dates, the band have two Canuck dates this month: Montreal on Wednesday (February 22) and Toronto the next day. See the schedule below.
