Shellac announce first new album for seven years

Shellac have announced their first new album in seven years, Dude Incredible.

The LP is the band's first since 2007's Excellent Italian Greyhound and will be released on September 16. According to a press release: "There is no comma in Dude Incredible; like Sir Duke or King Friday, for example."

The statement also says that the band do not plan to tour around the album, and will instead continue to play live shows whenever they see fit. "The band will continue to play shows or tour at the same sporadic and relaxed pace as always," it says. "There is no correlation between shows and record releases."

Steve Albini has been keeping busy with production work recently, working with bands including Cloud Nothings and Screaming Females at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, which is where Dude Incredible was recorded.

Dude Incredible tracklisting:

'Dude Incredible'
'Compliant'
'You Came in Me'
'Riding Bikes'
'All the Surveyors'
'The People's Microphone'
