Built To Spill working on a new album, touring this fall

Built To Spill has toured considerably over the past few years, and this fall the band is setting out once again. The group is currently working on a new album (after scrapping the last attempt), and recently added a new bassist, Jason Albertini, and drummer, Steve Gere, to the lineup. (The departure of the former members was civil.) The as-yet-unnamed LP will be the group's first since 2009's There Is No Enemy. The guys will play the Rock For Oklahoma Benefit and Doe Bay Festival this summer, then after a two month break will play almost every day of October and November. Slam Dunk will open many of the shows, and other guests include Genders and The Warm Hair. A full list of dates is below.
