Long standing, Nashville-based music pioneers Lambchop are announcing a new record and a tour for early 2012. The new album Mr. M will be the first new material since 2008's Oh (Ohio) and from what can be gathered will turn out to be one of Lambchop's best, ever.
The group's mastermind Kurt Wagner had taken a complete break from making music after the death of a close friend and musical collaborator, and instead focused on his original talents as a painter for the years to come and created a large series of small portraits of Southern debutantes called Beautillion Millitaire 2000 instead. It was while painting these, that Wagner pointed out that '... I felt Lambchop had at least one more good record in us'.
This record will be released via City Slang early in 2012. It will be the band's 10th regular studio album, adding to a career that spans over 18 years and has seen them go on to sell more than a million records. Further information about the new album will be available from Lambchop.net, City Slang and Konzertagentur Berthold Seliger in the coming weeks.
