Arizona-based alt-country group Calexico have announced that they will release their latest full-length album Algiers on Sept. 11. The band’s first proper studio effort since 2008’s Carried to Dust, the new record will be distributed by Anti- in the U.S. and City Slang in Europe.

The group’s core duo Joey Burns and John Convertino relocated to New Orleans with co-producer Craig Schumacher for the bulk of the recording sessions, living and working in a converted church in the outskirts of a neighborhood for which the record is named. ”The place is strong and bold, soulful to the core, but surrounded by a sea of darkness,” Burns explains in a press release. “There’s something creepy and old on the edge of town and written throughout the town’s histories. Those kinds of aesthetics help with the writing.”

You can view the album’s tracklist below, as well as a video for its lead single “Para.”
