Lord Huron have announced a new album, Vide Noir, and shared two new interconnected songs from it: “Ancient Names (Part I)” and “Ancient Names (Part II).” Vide Noir is due out April 20 via Whispering Pines/Republic Records. The band have also announced some tour dates. Check out both songs below, followed by the tour dates. Also below is a trailer for the album.

Vide Noir is the Los Angeles-based band’s third album and the follow-up to 2015’s Strange Trails. The album was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio, Whispering Pines (which a press release describes as the band’s “informal clubhouse”). Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT) mixed the album, which was engineered by Sonny DiPerri (Portugal. The Man, Animal Collective).

Lord Huron’s singer/songwriter/producer/founder Ben Schneider says in a press release that he found inspiration for the album by wandering around Los Angeles, his adopted home, at night. “My nighttime drives ranged all over the city-across the twinkling grid of the valley, into the creeping shadows of the foothills, through downtown’s neon canyons and way out to the darksome ocean,” he says. “I started imagining Vide Noir as an epic odyssey through the city, across dimensions, and out into the cosmos. A journey along the spectrum of human experience. A search for meaning amidst the cold indifference of The Universe.”

The album’s tracklist and cover art are still forthcoming and its first official single is also due to be shared soon.
