Shout Out Louds: New Album, U.S. Tour, New Video

SHOUT OUT LOUDS RETURN ON FEBRUARY 26
WITH NEW ALBUM, OPTICA

Merge Records is excited to announce that the Swedish five-piece Shout Out Louds will be releasing their fourth album, Optica, on February 26, 2013. The album marks 10 years since Shout Out Louds released their debut, Howl Howl Gaff Gaff. Last week, the band gave away the first taster from Optica, "Blue Ice" as a 7" actually made of ice. Only 10 ice kits exist worldwide. The official music video for "Blue Ice" is now available to see below. The video was directed and animated by Johan Toorell.

Shout Out Louds' first show in support of Optica will take place in Brooklyn, NY, at the Music Hall of Wiliamsburg on March 11, and they have confirmed a full stateside tour for May 2013, beginning May 7 in Washington, DC, and ending on May 23 at the El Rey in Los Angeles, CA.
