Freakwater Announces New Album Scheherazade

It’s been a long time – a decade and counting – since Freakwater released a new album. But wait only a little while longer, as the Chicago/Louisville-based group will put out Scheherazade on February 5th, 2016. This will be Freakwater’s first new full-length release since 2005’s Thinking Of You and their debut album on Bloodshot Records.

For those who can’t wait for the release of Scheherazade on 2/5/16, the group paired their announcement with the immediate release of a 7” for their new single “The Asp and the Albatross.”

Additionally, Freakwater announced a slew of album-release tour dates in February and March, as well as two dates in the next couple weeks. See below for more details.
