The Mynabirds have annnounced the release of their sophomore LP Generals. Due out June 5 via Saddle Creek the new work by singer/songwriter Laura Burhenn is both a protest record and concept album, turning inspiration from the Daughters of the American Revolution towards today’s modern political frustrations. “It was important for me that this record made sense of my own anger and turned it into positive energy,” says Burhenn in a press release. “I needed it to be transformative – of both the individual and the body politic. It’s as much a meditation on Walt Whitman’s hope for America as Gandhi’s directive to ‘be the change you want to see in the world.’” You can listen to the record’s lead single title track, as well as view the band’s upcoming tour dates, below.
