New Band Of Horses Album Expected In Early 2016


More than three years after the 2012 release of Mirage Rock, it appears Band of Horses is “almost all done” with their fifth studio album. Frontman Ben Bridwell spoke about the status of the Jason Lytle (Grandaddy) produced LP with Spanish blog Binaural as reported by Stereogum.

According to Stereogum’s translation, Bridwell said of the new LP “It’s almost all done. After [finishing an unplugged tour in] Zurich I’ll spend two weeks at home, to be with my family. I’ll take the opportunity to mix the record. All that’s left is one small vocal part of a track, that’s it.” Ben went on to say the album is due in the “first quarter of next year, in the spring,” which is disappointing because he feels “it’s a perfect record” for fall. “Strange to think that it will come out in a time when the weather comes alive.”

So, what will the new Band of Horses album sound like? “I think it’s close to Infinite Arms. It has some density to it, in fact I think it’s even more dense than Infinite Arms. The album was produced by Jason Lytle, who was a member of the band Grandaddy. If you listen to his band you’ll see that they’re very cinematic, very symphonic. It was very cool to trust in him. It will be a very dense record.” We should find out for ourselves early next year.
