Impossible Shapes New Album Finally Gets Proper Release

Proof that great albums can be recorded practically anywhere, the Impossible Shapes did so in drummer Mark Rice’s garage in Bloomington, Indiana. Completed is an astonishingly quick two weeks, the new album has been called the band’s masterpiece. Titled TUM, it is scheduled for a North American release on March 7 via Secretly Canadian. TUM was previously released last year on St. Ives Records, but only on vinyl. For those without turntables, fans were just out of luck. Once Secretly Canadian posted the album on their website, in just six weeks it was downloaded 45,000 times. Impressive!

The band has announced a tour, kicking off on Valentine’s Day in their hometown, which will take them clear to California and back to Bloomington in less than a month.
