Silversun Pickups, Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn announce new albums
Both LPs slated for a May 8 release
Silversun Pickups and Damon Albarn have both carved out May 8 for their return - on record, anyway.
The L.A.-based rock band and the Gorillaz/Blur frontman (who recently reunited with his Blur bandmates on-stage at the 2012 BRIT Awards) have both announced new albums, entitled "Neck of the Woods" and "Dr. Dee", respectively.
"Woods", which was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M., Bloc Party, Snow Patrol), is the third album for the Pickups; their last LP was 2009's "Swoon". The band is currently scheduled to play the SASQUATCH! Music Festival in George, WA on May 25 and at Toronto's Edgefest 2012 on July 14.
