AM have announced their new album today and I am hyped - it's called Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (TBHC for short).

I'm hoping it's going to be either back to their roots (wpsiatwim) or super experimental - I'm guessing it may be the latter from the announcement.

Release is the 11th of May and lp + cd pre-orders are available, I'm testing my self-restraint at the moment to not buy the LP before hearing the album and it's difficult.

I'm excited to find out what songs titled "The World’s First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip" and "The Ultracheese" are going to sound like.

I hoped you might comment, was even thinking about tagging you ;)

Those tracks are the ones I'm least excited for - I'm interested to see what they'll sound like, I think most of the tracks on the album are hinting towards something experimental though - also I saw a video of something related to space which may be where they got the idea from but I can't find it now.

I think that American Sports, Four Out of Five, Science Fiction, She Looks Like Fun could all be great by their names - speculating ofc.

I hope its more like Whatever People Say I Am, but given their more recent stuff, I'm going to go with it being experimental. We need some good music playing again!

As much as pre-ordering sounds exciting, I'm gonna take a listen to a few tracks when it drops first. I might not like it as much as I thought so i'd like a taste before i get the whole thing ;)
I was like that, but even their albums that I didn't like so much have become some of my favourites - perhaps my favourite band.

I have 2 of their albums on vinyl, plan on getting the rest so I figured I may as well regardless of if it's great or not because it'll be great.

Plus I prefer listening to full albums on vinyl - so I'll also assess it better.

Haha, thanks for thinking of me. Bought a ticket to see them live in August, am hyped. I'm guessing you're still holding out for a UK tour announcement? :p

Agreed w/ them hinting towards something experimental.

I'm hoping for a tour but not sure if I'll be able to get tickets - I hope so.

It got leaked and I couldn't wait, as much as I told myself I would.

Haven't finished listening to the whole thing yet, but Four out of Five is my favorite so far. GC Album Club #2 maybe after it's released on Friday? ;)
I've seen a lot of people liking 4/5, if I had to pick some favourites - at the moment: One Point Perspective, American Sports, Four out of Five, Batphone and Ultracheese (not in that order).

I really want to do it for an album club, we'll see! :D
