The Posies Announce New Album, Tour

July 15, 2010  |  4:30pm

Seattle-based alt-rockers The Posies, who brought us several albums worth of sweet guitar pop throughout the ‘90s, have announced their first album in five years. Blood/Candy is set for release on Sept. 28, which the band will celebrate by opening a European tour in Spain, where they self-produced much of the album.

As for the record’s musical direction, The Posies say this is something totally different than they’ve tried before. “We subscribe to the ‘evolve or perish’ philosophy,” co-founder Jon Auer says in a statement. “We directed ourselves to new places with this recording and tried not to travel down familiar paths when it could be avoided. Expect the unexpected.”

Check out Blood/Candy’s tracklisting below, and a list of tour dates below that.
