The Dodos announce new studio album and share first single "Forum" + US tour dates!
Posted 08/07/2018
Get stoked cause The Dodos, comprised of guitarist Meric Long and percussionist Logan Kroeber, have announced their long awaited seventh studio album, Certainty Waves. The Bay Area duo is back in action - listen to album opener “Forum” now! Packed with a fanfare-esque synth intro, thumping drums, trumpet bursts... not to mention a guitar line that wouldn’t be out of place snaking its way through a Strokes album - “Forum” also comes with a Joe Baughman-directed music video, available exclusively via Apple Music.

Stereogum reports, "The layered track leaps, twitching with energy. It has a grungy edge that leans away from some of their earlier, more folkier tunes. The lyrics still maintain a bright bounce.”

Hit our E-Store up to preorder your copy ahead of the October 12th release date — plus you can’t go wrong with shark socks and a spooky shirt. Dodos have also announced a North American tour with Prism Tats and label mates Palehound supporting. Tickets onsale this Friday, August 10th.
