!!! will release their fifth long-player on April 30 in the U.S. and April 29 in the UK via Warp, and here's what it's called: THR!!!ER.
Guitarist Mario Andreoni spelled out the ambitious meaning of the album title in the LP's press release:
Over the course of many long van rides and post-coffee verbal riff sessions, Thriller didn't merely come to represent the selling of a lot of records...it became synonymous with an artist(s)' and/or genre(s)' artistic high-watermark. INXS' Kick is the Australian Thriller...Alanis' Jagged Little Pill is the Canadian Thriller...Wham!'s Make It Big is the blow-dryer's Thriller...every recording by the 13th Floor Elevators is the dosed-man's Thriller..."Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground is the Thriller of musical fever dreams. One day at the studio, Nic [Offer, vocalist] drew THR!!!ER on a napkin and I liked it...then we made our THR!!!ER.
The follow-up to 2011's Strange Weather, Isn't It? was partially recorded with Spoon's Jim Eno.
