The Mountain Goats Announce New Album ‘Goths’ & Share New Single


By Kieran Webber

The Mountain Goats have announced their new album ‘Goths’, set for release May 19th via Merge Records, Speaking about ‘Goths’ bassist Peter Hughes says:

“The theme this time around is goth, a subject closer to my heart perhaps than that of any Mountain Goats album previous. And while John writes the songs, as he always has, it feels more than ever like he’s speaking for all of us in the band, erstwhile goths (raises hand) or otherwise, for these are songs that approach an identity most often associated with youth from a perspective that is inescapably adult. Anyone old enough to have had the experience of finding oneself at sea in a cultural landscape that’s suddenly indecipherable will empathize with Pat Travers showing up to a Bauhaus show looking to jam, for example.”

In addition to the album announcement the band have also shared the single ‘Andrew Eldritch is Moving Back to Leeds’, a delightfully playful and infectious track.
