The Dandy Warhols Next Album: Odditorium or Warlords of Mars

The Dandy Warhols have revealed the details of their next album, "Odditorium or Warlords of Mars," which will be released September 13. The album is partially named after the band's "infamous Portland studio headquarters." Word is the Dandies have moved away from their recent heavily synthesized sound "into expansive new musical terrain, while frequently revisiting the stripped-down sound of their earlier years."

Good news for those who miss Weezer's video for Undone (The Sweater Song)? "A video for first single "Smoke It" finds the band performing in front of 40 dogs." 50 would have been just too much. 30 would have made it look like they had no budget. They're on Capitol! They can afford to hire 40 dogs!

The Dandies will play at Lollapalooza in Chicago in July, and plan two separate tours, a fall North American tour and an acoustic "suitcase" tour. During the suitcase tour, the band "will play using everything they can fit into a single suitcase (besides acoustic guitars)." So it's not really a suitcase tour? This is a nifty idea, though.

I liked the synthesized songs of "Welcome to the Monkey House," but the new album sounds promising too. The song titles are great... I'll single out Love Is The New Feel Awful and Everyone Is Totally Insane, but I like most of them.
