Portland psych-rockers Moon Duo have announced their fourth album, Occult Architecture, which will be released in two separate volumes. Vol. 1 will be released on Feb. 3 via Sacred Bones, while details of Vol. 2 are still forthcoming.

The follow-up to 2015’s Shadow of the Sun is a two-part concept album built around the hidden patterns of our world, focusing on the light and dark energies of the Chinese Yin and Yang theory. Vol. 1 embodies the dark qualities of Yin, meaning “the shady side of the hill.” Accompanying the album announcement is the aptly murky debut single, “Cold Fear.”

In support of Occult Architecture Vol. 1, Moon Duo will embark on a 2017 North American and European tour. Listen to “Cold Fear” below, and further down, find the tracklist for Occult Architecture Vol. 1. Beneath that, find Moon Duo’s 2017 tour dates.
