Thurston Moore and his group Chelsea Light Moving have announced a fresh set of tour dates, and the release of their new full-length self-titled album on Mar. 4/5. The tour dates are for the US, save for one date in Toronto. They also released an MP3 for the song "Empires of Time."

That's the new album cover above, and here's what the band and Matador Records said in the announcement:

"CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING is the current group led by Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore. He is the songwriter and plays over-amped hyper electric guitar and sings with raw-glam-destructo vocals. The band is a four piece featuring Samara Lubelski, who has played violin with TM on his last two solo LPs (Demolished Thoughts and Trees Outside The Academy) and with CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING plays deep psyche pop metal bass guitar. Keith Wood, who records under the aegis Hush Arbors, plays electric guitar with a pick forged from angel wing and John Moloney, aka “Pegasus”, approaches the drums like an asteroid hurtling toward Earth. The first CD self-titled was recorded in two spurious sessions with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato in Sone Lab, a killer studio in Easthampton MASSACHUSETTS. The band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn’t support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology."

Check out some of their past MP3 offerings to hear how they sound, “Groovy & Linda” portrays the idealism of late 60s NYC East Village hippie idealism and Groovy and Linda as a sort of Bonnie and Clyde of the scene; and “Frank O’Hara Hit” returns to the very guitar roots that made Daydream Nation-era Sonic Youth so exciting.
