The Dirty Projectors have announced that they will be releasing their new album, Bitte Orca this coming June. The Album will be the 5th full-length released from the Brooklyn band, and get this -- they're going on tour too!

Bitte Orca will be released by the Dirty Projectors new home Domino Records on June 9. The album was recorded between Brooklyn and Portland, OR, and is the follow up to 2007's critically acclaimed Rise Above. According to Billboard, the Dirty Projectors worked out a deal with Domino to release two records this year, so we'll be waiting to see what the band has in store for us beyond June. If you can't wait till June to hear Dirty Projectors new album, their newest single, "Stillness is the Move" is being released on April 21 for all to enjoy.

If the excitement of the new album wasn't enough for you, primary Projectors David Longstreth and Angel Deradoorian have added Amber Coffman and Brian Mcomber to the band for their upcoming tour dates, where they will be playing four dates at the SXSW music showcase, as well as making their way throughout the U.K to play a slew of shows.
