The Breeders Announce New Album, Drop New Song

The Breeders are making a big splash (badum-bum) in 2018: The group announced their fifth studio album, “All Nerve,” this morning, which arrives on 4AD on March 2. They also dropped the title track as an advance single, which you can hear below, along with the album tracklist and extensive tour dates. The album features Courtney Barnett singing backing vocals on “How at the Summit” and longtime collaborator Steve Albini is involved as well.

The album was recorded with the lineup that created the group’s 1993 hit album “Last Splash”: twin sisters Kim and Kelley Deal, bassist Josephine Wiggs and drummer Jim Macpherson. The four returned to the stage in 2013 to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary and, according to a press release, have been “quietly” working on new material since then.

The group, which splintered in the wake of “Last Splash,” released an album and EP in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Deal, a founding member of the Pixies, also took part in that group’s reunion from 2004 until 2013.
