White Denim announced the upcoming arrival of what will be their sixth studio album on Wednesday morning. The nine-track album will be titled Performance, and is scheduled to arrive on Aug. 24 through their new label home at City Slang Records. The upcoming release will be their first full-length studio effort since the very fun Stiff arrived back in 2016. The band, which is primarily comprised of guitarist/singer James Petralli and bassist Steve Terebecki, also shared the first single set to appear on Performance with a very groovy, horn-filled song titled “Magazin.” The single can be heard in full in its equally fun animated lyric video seen above.

According to the announcement press release, Performance was recorded over an eight-week span at an “old general store” that has since been converted into a studio in their homebase of Austin, Texas. The album also includes collaborative contributions from keyboardist  Michael Hunter, who Petralli refers to as a “young, humble genius with endless potential.” Former NRBQ drummer Conrad Choucroun also appears on the album.

The band also extended their 2018 touring plans with a lengthy batch of dates throughout the rest of summer and into fall both here in North America and over in Europe and the U.K. Their previously announced touring schedule throughout June will now be followed by a brief run over in Britain beginning in late August, followed by another North American leg starting on Sept. 11 in St. Louis and continuing until Oct. 19. They’ll then head over to Europe for 10 shows throughout the month of November.

Tickets to the band’s newly announced headlining shows will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday, May 11. Fans can also click here to pre-order Performance ahead of its Aug. 24 release. For more information on White Denim, as well as tickets to select concerts, click here.
