The Men Share Two Tracks From Upcoming LP

The Men Share Two Tracks From Upcoming LP "Tomorrow's Hits. The album comes out on April 4th via Sacred Bones Records. The Men play March 2 in Allston, MA.

Today, The Men reveal two new tracks “Another Night” and “Different Days” off their upcoming record, Tomorrow’s Hits, out March 4th via Sacred Bones. Listen to “Another Night” here and “Different Days” here. In support of the new record, The Men are hitting the road this Spring on a full North American Tour.

After spending much of 2011 and 2012 on the road, including a trip upstate to write and record New Moon, their fourth full-length in as many years, The Men needed a break. They decided to take the winter of 2012 off to work on new material in Brooklyn. All that time spent on tour meant the band had no practice space, so founding member Mark Perro offered to turn his bedroom into one. All the furniture except the bed was moved out, and the band’s gear was moved in — drums, pianos, a dozen or so guitars, and amplifiers. They practiced in that bedroom in Bushwick nearly every day for three months, writing new songs and cutting more than 40 demos.

By the end of that winter, the Men had pared that crop of songs down to 13. With their plans to take a break foiled by their own work ethic, they decided to record those songs before New Moon came out. They booked two days at Brooklyn’s Strange Weather studios, clocked in, and tracked all 13 songs entirely live. A horn section stopped by as well, contributing to two songs and playing live right along with the band.

Eight songs from those sessions made the final cut for The Men’s new LP for Sacred Bones, the tongue-in-cheek-but-still-auspiciously-titled Tomorrow’s Hits. This is their first album recorded in a high-end studio and, appropriately, the result is their highest fidelity album to date. The Men 2014 Tour Dates
