Cursive have announced a new album, Vitriola, and shared its first single, “Life Savings.” Vitriola is due out October 5 via the band’s own label, 15 Passenger. Listen to “Life Savings” below via NPR. Also below are the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Vitriola is the band’s first new album in six years, since 2012’s I Am Gemini. Tim Kasher still fronts the band and the new album finds him joined by returning founding drummer Clint Schnase, touring member Megan Siebe (who is the first cellist to appear on a Cursive record since 2003), longtime guitarist/singer Ted Stevens, founding bassist Matt Maginn, and keyboardist Patrick Newbery (a member since 2006).

Kasher had this to say to NPR about Vitriola: “I was really wanting to go back to that raw emotional feeling that I used to get, how I wrote the first couple Cursive records when I was a younger man. I would suggest that that was a little bit easier this time, with so much avarice and bile that we were all experiencing. [It] felt natural for me to just go with that.”

Vitriola Tracklist:

01 “Free To Be Or Not To Be You And Me”
02 “Pick Up The Pieces”
03 “It’s Gonna Hurt”
04 “Under The Rainbow”
05 “Remorse”
06 “Ouroboros”
07 “Everending”
08 “Ghost Writer”
09 “Life Savings”
10 “Noble Soldier/Dystopian Lament”
