Unknown Mortal Orchestra Announce Jagjaguwar Debut, Out 2013


It’s official. Unknown Mortal Orchestra announce their sophomore album, II, the follow up to 2011′s esteemed debut. Think Pink Floyd, the Family Stone, The Beatles and Soft Machine shaken up and pushed through Ruban’s distorted rock’n'roll kaleidoscope. II came to be during Ruban’s long inhabitance of the perils intense touring often encapsulate. Themes of loneliness, love and despair surface on the new record, giving listeners a special lens to life on the road. II is out February 5, 2013.

A few weeks ago, we shared the first cut from II – the fantastic “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark).” Go ahead a give that track another listen above. In addition to streaming, you can now purchase the once tour-exclusive “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” b/w “Waves of Confidence” 7″ via iTunes.

Ruban, Jacob and Greg are currently on tour! They’ve just announced a performance at Hype Machine’s CMJ Party next week, too (make sure to RSVP). See all their dates and ticket information HERE! Ruban is also nominated for Best Alternative Album and Best Male Solo Artist in the New Zealand Music Awards!
