The Wrens Announce New Album

The Wrens tell Billboard while they're still writing their next album, they hope to release it before the end of the year. A remastered version of EP Abbott 1135 is also in the works, with release set for Fall.

As for the album, the group's Charles Bissell tells Billboard it will address the coincidence that happened right before the 2003 release of Meadowlands, with every member of the group experiencing the death of a parent within two months.

The Wrens have several tour dates over the next few months, and Bissell says the group plans on putting some older and unreleased songs on their website later this year.

The Wrens Tour Dates:

May 4 - Berlin, Germany - Rotor Salon

May 5 - Dresden, Germany - StarClub

May 6 - Vienna, Austria - Planet

June 30 - Groningen, Netherlands - Vera

July 1 - Amsterdam, Netherlands - Melkweg

July 2 - Rotterdam, Netherlands - Metropolis Festival

July 13 - Regensburg, Germany - Alte Malzerei

July 14 - Heidelberg, Germany - Karlstorbahnhof

July 15 - Hamburg, Germany - Knust

Ambitious to tour in the summer while writing an album they plan to release this year. It's almost like they're trying to make the B-52's feel guilty. I just hope it doesn't start some vicious rivalry. They're both good bands; they just have different work styles. And that's okay.
