The Low Anthem Announces New Album


The Low Anthem will release their follow-up to 2009’s Oh My God, Charlie Darwin on Feb. 22.

Smart Flesh was recorded in an abandoned pasta sauce factory. “We knew right away when we stepped into the factory,” frontman Ben Knox Miller said in a statement. “The space was really the main instrument for the whole record. The resonance was chilling. We were able to experiment with new recording techniques to capture the sound at different distances. Mics 100, even 200 feet away caught the sound barreling across the room.”

The band is also currently touring, playing some winter dates with Iron & Wine and Emmylou Harris.
