Sebadoh hit the road earlier this month for a handful of dates in the western U.S. to tease next months’ release of Defend Yourself, the band’s first new album in 14 years. While they were in Seattle, the band — Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein and Bob D’Amico — stopped by KEXP for an in-studio performance.
Sebadoh today announced plans to release its first new album in 14 years this September, a record titled Defend Yourself that follows up last year’s comeback Secret EP and that new label Joyful Noise Recordings claims “marks a return to the self-recorded DIY ethos of early Sebadoh albums (Bakesale, Sebadoh III).”
After several years of touring in support of various classic albums, the reunited Sebadoh this week dropped a surprise on fans: a new five-song EP called Secret, which is both Lou Barlow & Co.’s first new music in 13 years and a teaser to a full-length album that should arrive sometime in 2013.
