Future Bible Heroes - Partygoing

Merge Records has just released information concerning a new album called Partygoing from the Stephin Merritt-fronted electro-pop collective Future Bible Heroes, which also includes Magnetic Fields cohort Claudia Gonson and composer Christopher Ewen.  It’s been over 10 years since the trio’s last release as Future Bible Heroes, that being 2002’s Eternal Youth, but that hasn’t stopped Merrit and gang from constanty being on the lookout for suitable material for the FBH moniker.  They’ve released a new song called “Living, Loving, Partygoing” along with the album release information, and it’s filled with enough bubbling, ecstatically synth-tastic moments to sit along the best of the band’s output. Listen to the new track below and mark your calendars for June 8th, which is Partygoing‘s official release date. The band has also announced that Merge will compile all three Future Bible Heroes albums and an additional disc of EP tracks into one newly remastered collection called Memories of Love, Eternal Youth, and Partygoing.
