Super Furry Animals have confirmed Hey Venus! as the title of their forthcoming album and follow up to 2005’s Love Kraft, NME.com reports. Although a Hey Venus! release date has yet to be finalized, reports slate the album to drop this August. This news is just the latest in an eventful year for Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys. The singer and multi-instrumentalist dispatched his second solo effort Candylion in January, and has recently announced the formation of Neon Neon, a side project with Bryan Hollon, a.k.a. Boom Bip. The duo’s first record will follow later this summer.
