Following the release of their rather well-received new album Swing Lo Magellan, Dirty Projectors have a new EP on the way. The About To Die EP leads with the title cut from the album, and will also include three new tracks. The EP will be released by Domino on November 6th both digitally, and as a 12″. Pre-order swiftly, and you could be one of the lucky people to get a signed piece of wax. You can check out the tracklisting after the jump.
Along with the new EP, the band also have a new video to go along with “About To Die.” The video takes clips from the band’s recently released film Hi Custodian. The film itself was directed by Projectors front-man David Longstreth, and features the other band members doing stuff like sing in odd costumes and be surrounded by holy men. Watch it below:

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
