The Mountain Goats Reveal New Album Details

I think 2007 has been a special year for music, I will reveal my favourites some time in December. So, can 2008 match it. Hard to say. New Wolf Parade is rumoured for April, so that is a good start. Then there is. "Heretic Pride" is the new opus from those purveyors of soul searching and life defining music, The Mountain Goats. Yes, John Darnielle and company return with a new album on February 19 on 4AD. John Darnielle is assisted by Peter Hughes, of course, Franklin Bruno, Annie Clark and The Bright Mountain Choir, amongst others. Produced by John Vanderslice and Scott Solter, it contains 13 tracks and is sure to entertain, enlight and enrapture. Bring on February!

To quote John-
"We are really excited about this album, and we wish it were out right now, but there is a law against releasing albums in December unless you are Queen. Any album you see released in December is actually by Queen, no matter what it says on the cover. Then in January everybody is recovering from having listened to too much Queen. Hence, February. See you then!"
