Swedish psych-rock collective GOAT have just announced their new album, Requiem, which will be released October 7th, 2016 in North America by Sub Pop Records, Stranded Records in Nordic countries, and Rocket Records in the rest of the world.

Requiem is the band’s third full-length and their second for Sub Pop. The 13-track album features the songs “Try My Robe,” “Alarms,” and “Union of Sun and Moon.” Requiem finds GOAT focusing more on their subdued, bucolic ritualism than psilocybin freakouts, with a pronounced folk-rock influence pervading the album. But Goat hasn’t foregone their fiery charms—tracks like “All-Seeing Eye” and “Goatfuzz” conjure the sultry pulsations that ensnared listeners on 2012’s World Music and 2014’s Commune.

Requiem will be available in North America on CD / 2xLP / DL / CASS on October 7th, 2016.
