The brand-new album from The House of Love will be titled She Paints Words in Red and is expected to be released in March or April on Cherry Red Records, according to an announcement today on the band’s Facebook page that also revealed the cover art for the group’s second post-reunion effort and fifth record overall.
Last week, the House of Love’s Facebook page made the surprise revelation that a new album had been completed and delivered “fully mastered and mixed.” A firm release date for She Paints Words in Red has not yet been set, nor has a tracklist been revealed.
The current House of Love lineup features original members Guy Chadwick (vocals, guitar), Terry Bickers (guitar) and Pete Evans (drums), plus new(er) bassist Matt Jury. That lineup recorded and released Days Run Away in 2005 and has toured sporadically in the intervening years, playing, most recently, its only 2012 concert at a festival in Poland last summer.
