Canada’s The Besnard Lakes are releasing a brand new album, A Coliseum Complex Museum, on January 22, 2016 via Jagjaguwar. We’ve already been treated to “Golden Lion” and below is another track from the record, “The Plain Moon.”

A Coliseum Complex Museum is the follow-up to 2013’s fantastic Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO, which received its share of critical acclaim but was still criminally underappreciated/under-heard in our opinion. The Besnard Lakes lineup is still anchored by founding members and husband and wife team Jace Lasek (guitars/vocals) and Olga Goreas (vocals/bass), along with long-term drummer Kevin Laing. For this album they are joined by Sheenah Ko (keys/vocals) and Robbie Macarthur (guitar). Previous guitarist Richard White still collaborates in the studio but no longer tours with the band.

A limited number of deluxe pre-orders of the album come with a metal sigil handcrafted by Goreas and inspired by her father. “I made 11 sigils after my dad passed away almost four years ago,” Goreas said in a press release. “Each sigil has a particular meaning and there are 11 of them because he died in November of 2011 and numerologically speaking, 11 represents a rebuilding of sorts. In a way, our last album was about endings and this album is about beginning again.”

Below is “The Plain Moon.” Also read our 2013 interview with The Besnard Lakes.
