Guided By Voices Premiere "Bad Love Is Easy to Do" Track Release New LP Announces NYC + DC Shows|| 'Cool Planet' LP Out May 13th On Guided By Voices Inc


Written during the sub-freezing Polar Vortex of 2014, the next Guided by Voices record is titled Cool Planet. The platter was recorded in a single proper studio – Cyberteknics in Dayton, Ohio – for the first time since their inexhaustible reformation. There’s some unusual production on Cool Planet, thanks to the array of vintage equipment on offer at Cyberteknics.

Robert Pollard has talked in recent months about having refined his approach to songwriting and the tunes he’s written for Cool Planet compare to his previous work, including the hard hitting title track, which should sound pretty good live. Guitarist Tobin Sprout steps up with (among others) a Bowie-esque number (“Psychotic Crush”) and a Beatle-esque number (“All American Boy”) – it should be noted that Tobin recorded his songs for the most part at his home studio in Leland, Michigan, but they do fit in nicely .

Look what Guided By Voices have done for the world since reforming in 2010. Six full-length albums in less than four years. And that’s not counting EPs, singles, tours, or solo records.
