Kim Deal has announced The Breeders will be putting out a new album in March of 2008. Their fourth full-length will be titled Mountain Battles and is to be released on 4AD, the label she started out on as a member of Pixies.
In an interview with Rock Daily, Deal revealed the band — which now consists of herself, twin sister Kelley, drummer Jose Medeles and bassist Mando Lopez — has been recording on and off for the past five years with Steve Albini in Chicago as well as Erika Sharkey and Manny Nieto in Los Angeles and her Dayton, Ohio, hometown.
Deal says the new album doesn’t deviate far from the Breeders’ classic sound, though there were more moments of experimentation. I, for one, am already looking forward to it. Hope it impacts like uhm.... a cannonball? :-)
Notice how "fresh" Kim and Kelley still look in this video. A big difference with when I last saw them perform, at Werchter somewhere in the 90s... Word has it drugs and alcohol were involved. Shame!
