By the time August 26 rolls around it'll have been more than a full year since the release Ty Segall's last studio album, Sleeper. That's a pretty brief refractory period for most bands, but in Segall years, that's like, an eternity, man. But on that date, the prolific SPIN cover star and Fuzz band boss will release Manipulator, a new 17-song LP for Drag City. Also, the label promises "SO many guitars!," so maybe we'll see a return to the high-flying garage-rock heroics of yore.
"Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space?" asks the press release. Why indeed. And why stay home when you can shred to the masses? As it turns out, when that album does indeed drop, Segall will launch a three-month tour. You can catch those dates below, alongside Manipulator's track list and album art. Also, there's a goofy, glammy album trailer above that previews many of the songs from Manipulator.
Manipulator track list:
2. "Tall Man, Skinny Lady"
3. "The Singer"
4. "It's Over"
6. "The Faker"
7. "The Clock"
8. "Green Belly"
