Did you take advantage of the Magentic Morning EP that came out on Record Store Day last April? If you did, and you liked it as much as we did, then you'll be happy to hear that the duo comprised of Swervedriver's Adam Franklin and Interpol's Sam Fogarino will be releasing a proper full length this fall.
Set to record this August in Athens, GA, Adam Franklin had this to say about the process, "When we first worked together we had no real idea of what things would sound like or what direction it would take, but very quickly an overall sound and style aesthetic developed which I can't quite specify; but there's a kind of melancholic, reflective, walking-off-into-the-sunset side to it." Fogarino continued, "For the both of us, working together is the opposite of our norms. Adam is usually the main songwriter for whatever he's involved with. And I don't contribute all that much to the melodic side of Interpol, only in the ways it's colored, treated, and effected. But in Magnetic Morning, I'm usually the one to bring forth a chord progression, or a melody that Adam will add to, musically, lyrically, and vocally."
They will debut some of the new material on the road in October and November. Peep the dates and fear not if you don't see your city listed. The guys promise to add some more dates soon.
