The Dodos have announced a new album, Certainty Waves, and shared its first single, "Forum." Certainty Waves is due out October 12 via Polyvinyl. They have also announced some tour dates. Listen to "Forum" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

The Dodos are guitarist Meric Long and percussionist Logan Kroeber. This year they celebrated the 10-year anniversary of their breakout sophomore record Visiter, which was Under the Radar's #3 best album of 2008. Certainty Waves is the band's seventh studio and Long calls the band's "midlife crisis record." Back in May, Long released Barton's Den, a new solo album as FAN, his first full-length under that name. The Dodos' last album was 2015's Individ.

A press release describes the album as such: "Certainty Waves finds The Dodos going back to their Visiter roots, embracing the unlimited possibilities of a time when there were no preconceptions of what the band should sound like. The duo had to forget everything they knew about what it meant to be The Dodos -- and quit worrying about the 'right' acoustic guitar to drum ratio -- and what began to emerge from the band's rehearsals felt new and different, yet somehow still fundamentally 'Dodos.'"

1. Forum
