The Vaselines Announce New LP, Share "One Lost Year"
Published Jun 16, 2014More than 20 years divided the Vaselines' 1989 debut Dum-Dum and its 2010 follow-up Sex with an X. There will be a much shorter wait for their next album, since V for Vaselines will be out on September 29 in the UK and October 7 in North America through Rosary Music.
The Scottish indie pop band self-produced the album at Mogwai's Castle of Doom studio. It features contributions from a new of fellow Glaswegians like Stevie Jackson (Belle and Sebastian), Francis Macdonald (Teenage Fanclub), Michael McGaughrin (1990s), Graeme Smillie (Olympic Swimmers) and more.
The album was apparently inspired by singer-guitarist Eugene Kelly's aim to "write some really short punk rock songs, just get into people's ear really straight away, and then get out of there really quickly," Pitchfork reports.
