The Antlers will release Burst Apart on May 10, via Frenchkiss Records. It's the follow up to their 2009 album Hospice.
Here's what frontman Peter Silberman had to say on the band's web site: "We spent somewhere in the realm of 5 months recording it (although truthfully, we've been planning and sketching the record since we began touring on Hospice back in 2009). We moved into our own recording studio in September 2010, and spent essentially every waking hour working on Burst Apart, producing the record ourselves, with Darby at the helm engineering. We wrapped up recording this past January, and will be releasing this record to you on May 10 via Frenchkiss Records. I can honestly say that I've never been more excited to have people hear something as I am with Burst Apart."
The Antlers just debuted Burst Apart at the 2011 SXSW Music Festival in Austin Texas, check out the video of the show.
