Les Savy Fav Announce First Album Since 2010, Share Video for New Song: Watch

Les Savy Fav have announced their first album in 14 years. Oui, LSF arrives May 10 (via Frenchkiss/The Orchard). The Brooklyn group has shared the new song “Guzzle Blood” alongside an animated music video by Christy Karacas. Singer Tim Harrington described the song as dropping “you into the bottom of a dark well. In a lot of ways, the rest of the record is about the things we do to climb back out.” Check it out below.

Oui, LSF, the follow-up to 2010’s Root for Ruin and the band’s sixth full-length LP overall, spans 14 songs, including the comeback single “Legendary Tippers” from earlier this month.

Though members Harrington, Seth Jabour, Syd Butler, Harrison Haynes, and Andrew Reuland have been making music together since 1995, they didn’t want to rely on well-established strokes for Oui, Lsf. “When we finished our last record, there was a sense that if we were going to do more, we wanted to do something more ambitious,” Harrington said. “I think it took us a while to even get in a space where that was possible.”

Les Savy Fav have also announced a short tour for this summer. Across nine performances, the band will perform in U.S. cities Brooklyn, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, and Portland as well as the previously revealed European shows. Find their complete list of tour dates after the jump.
