Three years after releasing their sophomore album, Belong, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart are back with Days of Abandon. The New York noise-pop group's third LP will be released on April 22 by young label Yebo Music. The band has yet to unveil any new music from the album, which was produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, the Killers, the Kills) but this December-released music video for "Belong" will help tide you over. The band will kick off a North American tour on March 7 in Baltimore, with Eternal Summers and Fear of Men supporting. Check out the Spanx-ed Days of Abandon LP artwork by South Korean artist Lee Jinju, as well as the track list and tour dates, below.
