New Album ‘Castlemania’ From Thee Oh Sees

Written by Barnaby Smith on April 19, 2011

California’s enduring psychedelic punk-noise merchants Thee Oh Sees have come forth with details of their next long-player, entitled Castlemania.

The San Francisco crew will release the album in the US on June 14 via In The Red, according to Pitchfork. The album comes merely a year after their acclaimed previous record, Warm Slime.

Leading man John Dwyer is quoted as saying, “I guess there is a theme going on in this record. It’s shit I didn’t realize while making it – songs about bad things, packaged in a summery record about getting numb to life and its little pleasures as you take it for granted with age.”

Oh dear. The band are also welcoming a new member to the fold, singer and instrumentalist Lars Finberg. Impressively, the band reportedly have a yet another album up their sleeve that is tipped to come out later in the year.

Thee Oh Sees were in Australia in October last year for a well-received tour that included several festival appearances.

Thee Oh Sees, who began life in 1997, is largely the vehicle for the large imagination of Dwyer, though these days he counts himself as a member of a band, which also includes the wonderful talent that is Bridgid Dawson.
