The Dead Milkmen

After releasing a steady stream of 7-inch singles over the past couple years, The Dead Milkmen return next month with their first new album in three years, a 17-track collection called Pretty Music For Pretty People that, perhaps not surprisingly, contains many of the songs included on those limited-edition 45s.

The new album, which follows up 2011’s The King in Yellow, which was the Milkmen’s first new album in 15 years, arrives Oct. 7. The band — original members Joe Jack Talcum, Dean Clean and Rodney Anonymous, plus bassist Dan Stevens, who replaces the late Dave Blood — reunited in 2008, and has been playing sporadically ever since.

Below, check out the video for the title tracks, as well as the full tracklist (including such typically delightful titles as “The Sun Turns Our Patio Into A Lifeless Hell”) and cover art.
