CSS Announce New Album, Canadian Shows

CSS Announce New Album, Canadian Shows
Brazilian quintet CSS have leaked word on their new album title, and it ain’t pretty. In honour of the cranky long-eared mammal, Donkey is what their sophomore effort will be dubbed, with a tentative release date of July 22 scheduled for the record.

The band recorded the album during a four-month session in their native São Paolo and presumably without bassist Ira Trevisan, who recently left the group due to "climate change” and "fashion.”

If July feels a little too far off, on Monday, April 28, the band will release a little Donkey teaser, the track "Rat Is Dead (Rage),” via their website. The song will be a freebie, costing you nothing to download (because we all know you’ll just find it for free anyway).

Also, CSS will get their touring machine in motion May 5 in the UK and come August will starting hitting up a few Canadians cities. Well, really only the usual three: Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Here are the dates:
