THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS PREMIERE “HIGH TICKET ATTRACTIONS” VIDEO

WHITEOUT CONDITIONS DUE APRIL 7; THE FIRST ALBUM ON THE BAND’S OWN COLLECTED WORKS RECORDS IMPRINT

TOUR DATES SET FOR SPRING INCLUDING HEADLINING PERFORMANCE AT NPR’S SXSW OPENING NIGHT SHOWCASE


“Hold on tight: it’s another relentlessly exuberant, propulsive jam from The New Pornographers. The latest in the band’s deep catalog of clever and addictive power pop is ‘High Ticket Attractions.’” —NPR Music

“Like all the best New Pornos songs, ‘High Ticket Attractions’ is a winningly melodic pop gem, a slice of driving electric guitars and burbling synths.” –Stereogum

“These days we all could use a little cheer, and fortunately, The New Pornographers will supply some with the April 7th release of Whiteout Conditions.” –Consequnce of Sound


Critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers are premiering the video for the track “High Ticket Attractions” off their forthcoming full-length record Whiteout Conditions. Director Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso) notes, “I have always wanted to wreck things in music videos, I just never thought I would get a chance to destroy an entire high school!” Watch/share the video at https://youtu.be/ZAlHISTNbwY. The album is due April 7 and is the first release on the band’s own Collected Works Records imprint in partnership with Concord Records. See below for a complete track list.

Recently, the group also premiered the track “This is the World of the Theater,” via Noisey as well as on all streaming services; stream/share the song at http://bit.ly/2lhUDMf.

Whiteout Conditions is available for pre-order with a glow-in-the-dark poster now at www.thenewpornographers.com. The New Pornographers will also tour the U.S. and Europe this spring, starting with a headlining performance at the NPR SXSW opening night showcase at Stubb’s on March 15. Tickets for all U.S. shows include a free download of the new album; see below for a complete list of dates.

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”

Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an “exuberant, synthpop-infused set” by Rolling Stone, “infectious” by Harper’s Bazaar and “the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with” by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that “with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself—bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path.” The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music “First Listen Live” concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both “Conan” and the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
