Athens, Ga.-spawned 4 to Watch alums Modern Skirts are readying a new album, All of Us in Our Night, set to drop on Jan. 20. The band’s first album since Catalogue of Generous Men in 2005 includes cuts produced by R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills and Cracker’s David Lowery and was recorded in Richmond, Va., New Orleans and back home in Athens. The record features original artwork by an Atlanta artist that creates a sequential narrative broken up for each new track.

In the meantime, Modern Skirts have been away on a Fall tour, including a gig as openers for R.E.M. in Amsterdam. The guys are now back in North America with a handful of shows left and a promise of more to come.
