New Album this September from The New Year

Exciting news and times! The New Year has emerged from the studio with 10 songs that will comprise their upcoming self-titled album, to be released September 9, 2008.

The Brothers Kadane, along w/ the rest of the group, have been making music for the last 17 years - in the 1990s with Bedhead and for the last decade with The New Year. They take their time making records, and this is only their third, and the first since 2004's The End is Near.

Lyrically, these ten songs address the interlocked themes of lost time, frustrated desire, and the need for others. Although musically these may be the band's most varied songs -- for a band that made innovative use of three guitars, almost half the songs here are built around the piano -- it is the careful sequence of these songs that brings the story the lyrics tell together. The New Year will be touring the US and Europe as a full band this fall, and the Kadane Brothers are on tour this summer with Bottomless Pit.

While you're waiting for that record in September, why not check out this little teaser video or even this clip for "The End's Not Near".
