Frog Eyes are ready with a new album that's been perk-perk-percolating over last three years and will be released on April 27th. It's titled Paul's Tomb: A Triumph. Casey Mercer and his band will find new life for a new album on Dead Oceans, the band's new home.

Check out an advance track with the song "A Flower in a Glove." It's the nine minute opening song.

What's different this time is that the Frog Eyes approach breaks out of the "cleverness ghetto," as Dead Oceans puts it. Mr. Mercer found a better way to package the holistic whole of the Frog Eyes sound.

The vocals were also recorded in live takes, to remove the cold compression that happens when bands do lots if individual recording takes, only to end up pasting together bunch of disjointed samples that are not connected in any way.

"This approach has captured a rawness, a punk rock spirit too often smothered by Pro Tools," reads the Dead Oceans announcement.
