The Mountain Goats have announced a new album, Getting Into Knives, and shared its first single, “As Many Candles As Possible,” via a lyric video for it. Getting Into Knives is due out October 23 via Merge. Check out the Lalitree Darnielle-directed “As Many Candles As Possible” lyric video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Getting Into Knives is the follow-up to 2019’s In League With Dragons and was recorded with that album’s engineer, Matt Ross-Spang, now acting as producer, at Sam Phillips Recording in Nashville in the same studio where The Cramps recorded their debut album.

“We would work until midnight and then return to the house where all four of us were staying, directly across the street from the studio, and hang out for hours on the patio,” frontman John Darnielle explains in the album’s bio.

In League With Dragons followed 2017’s Goths and 2015’s wrestling-themed Beat the Champ. The band features Darnielle, drummer Jon Wurster, bassist Peter Hughes, and multi-instrumentalist Matt Douglas.
