Paralytic Stalks, the latest from of Montreal, is now officially available for pre-order! The album will be available on CD, 180-gram 2xLP (limited edition fuchsia, or black vinyl), Cassette, and MP3 formats on Feb 7th.

Always one to be exploring new musical directions, Kevin Barnes (of Montreal's main creative force) has once again showcased his versitle talent as a songwriter with Paralytic Stalks - an album that contains some of Barnes' most personal confessions since 2007's Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

Paralytic Stalks may be some of Barnes' darkest material to date, touching on topics such as self-hatred, revenge, human existence, his relationship with wife Nina, and others that illustrate an emotionally raw character.

Musically, Paralytic Stalks is a whilrwind of modern classical, neo-prog, pseudo-country, and 60's pop. Recorded at Barnes' home studio in Athens, GA and mixed at Chase Park Transduction with the help of Drew Vandenburg (Deerhunter, Toro Y Moi), Paralytic Stalks shows hints of Barnes's extensive past repitoire, while intimately engaging listeners in a way like never before.
