Sebadoh have announced a new album, Act Surprised, and shared a video for its first single, “Celebrate the Void.” They have also announced some tour dates. Act Surprised is due out May 24 via Dangerbird. Check out the “Celebrate the Void” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

Act Surprised is the band’s first album in six years. The band (Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein, and Bob D’Amico) recorded it with producer/sound engineer Justin Pizzoferatto after Barlow “moved back to his home state of Massachusetts following a series of personal changes.”

Barlow had this to say about “Celebrate the Void” in a press release: “The first line of this song: ‘I get the feeling you don’t feel me’ is pretty good. It could be a line in an Ariana Grande song, I like it. I followed it from there through some general complaints about a composite character in my life, someone I could never crack. Sometimes the walls are too high. If you think about it, the resistance was always there, even in the very beginning. What to do? Pick endlessly at the seams? Replay moments in my head looking for a way to explain it all? No, stop, there is no one answer and that’s OK…Celebrate the void.”

Lowenstein wryly added: “Of all the records we have made in our long career, this is definitely the most recent.”
