File this one under AWESOME NEWS - Our fave psychedelic rockers POND are coming back with a brand spankin’ new album in the early part of 2015.
On Man It Feels Like Space Again they’ve teamed up with another Cool Accident fave, artist Ben Montero who channels Crumb not to mention Big Brother and the Holding Company on the album’s cover art.
The date of release in Australia is Jan 23 and we’re especially excited for the vinyl which according to POND’s Facebook page will feature a die-cut outer sleeve with inner sleeve freakazoid mural!
A new album announcement wouldn’t be complete without some new music and they’ve got that sorted too. Lead single Elvis’ Flaming Star comes complete with a wacky VHS homemade video.
The guys gave the scoop to Pitchfork - It was shot using three iPhones, “six cans of silly string with three silly string assault rifles”, water balloons, Christmas lights, fake flowers, “one pair of alien sunnies and one pair of steampunk goggles,” and “2 much dumb shit to count really,” among other things, according to the band.
“It hurts more than you think getting pelted in the face with water balloons,” they add.
Check it out below, and remember to put Grandma’s Christmas money aside, so you can cop it on release.
