Chicago-based rock trio Horsegirl have announced the release of their debut album, Versions of Modern Performance, which will be out on June 3 via Matador. In addition to sharing a video for the album’s lead single, “Anti-glory,” they have also announced a tour in support of the album. View the Erin Vassilopoulos-directed video for “Anti-glory” below, along with the album’s tracklist/cover art and full list of tour dates.

In a press release, the band state: “We wrote ‘Anti-glory’ almost by accident, while messing around with an old song during rehearsal. The song fell into place immediately, and looking back, we have no idea how we wrote it. As always, this song and album are for Chicago, our friends, our friend’s bands, everyone who can play the guitar, and everyone who can’t play the guitar.”

Versions of Modern Performance was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago with producer John Agnello. The band explain: “It’s our debut bare-bones album in a Chicago institution with a producer who we feel really respected what we were trying to do.”

Last year, Horsegirl shared the album track “Billy,” which was one of our Songs of the Week.
