The Pedaljets, the vintage underground rock act from Kansas, has reunited and will be releasing their first new album in 23 years. What’s In Between is due out June 25, but The A.V. Club is streaming the record’s first single, “Terra Nova,” exclusively starting today.
The Pedaljets launched in Lawrence, Kansas in 1984 and opened for Husker Du, The Flaming Lips, The Replacements, and The Meat Puppets before breaking up in 1990, shortly after the release of their disappointing second record, which the band says was rushed out by the label before it was ready. Back in 2006, the band started hanging out again and re-recorded that self-titled second record, making it into something they could actually tolerate. Since that went well, the band started working on the new material that is now coming out as What’s In Between.
The record was mixed by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Hold Steady) and features art by The Sea And Cake’s Archer Prewitt.
