As promised, we bring you the brand new single from The Besnard Lakes‘ forthcoming Are The Roaring Night LP. Picking up right where their first album, Are The Dark Horse, left off, “Albatross” is a sonic assault on the senses that combines epic drone with Beach Boyish melodies.
The band have a string of shows lined up in North America for April and will also be wowing audiences at this year’s SXSW in March. The new album will be released March 9th in the US and March 8th in the UK through Jagjaguwar records. Download “Albatross” (MP3) and check out the tour dates after the jump.
