Come summer, Danish post-rock band Mew will be releasing its lengthily titled new album—which is the third one to be released in America and which was recorded last summer in Brooklyn, NY—on August 25th. The entire title reads:

No more stories

Are told today

I’m sorry

They washed away

No more stories

The world is grey

I’m tired

Let’s wash away

Preceding the album’s release, Mew will also be releasing an EP entitled No More Stories which comes out June 30th.  While it includes three B-sides, it also boasts two tracks from the album, and if you opt to buy the EP digitally, iTunes will offer their standard Complete-My-Album option beginning August 25th
