Islands announce new album; hear a track

By ; July 9, 2013 at 4:49 PM 


Nick Thorburn has and has had many different musical projects over the last decade or so, but Islands is undoubtedly his main focus, as proven today by the announcement of the band’s fifth album. Ski Mask is the LP’s title, and follows up last year’s A Sleep and a Forgetting. Ski Mask is due out on September 17th through Thorburns own Manque label.

“Wave Forms” is the first track available from the album, and seems more jaunty and colourful than the majority of the band’s last outing. You can listen to that below, and we have Ski Mask‘s cover art and track list beneath. Islands have also announced a tour in conjunction with the album release, and you can see the dates at the bottom.

01. Wave Forms
02. Death Drive
03. Becoming the Gunship
04. Nil
