Thee Oh Sees Announce 'Floating Coffin'
Published Jan 28, 2013Ty Segall isn't San Francisco's only insanely prolific garage rock act. Thee Oh Sees released their most recent album, Putrifiers II, this past September, and they're already poised to follow it up with a new record called Floating Coffin. It comes out on April 16th through Castle Face Records.
A press release called this the most diverse Oh Sees record yet. It reportedly ventures into punk and drone in addition to including a string-assisted waltz-time serenade. Songwriter John Dwyer said in a statement, "These songs occur in the mindset of a world that's perpetually war-ridden. Overall, it's pretty dark, and much heavier than our other albums."
No music from Floating Coffin has yet emerged online, but song titles include "Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster," "Strawberries 1 + 2," "Tunnel Time" and "Minotaur." Check out the album cover up above.
