The ever-prolific and always active Guided By Voices is back at it again with their second release of 2023, a brand new full-length record entitled Welshpool Frillies, due July 21 via GBV Inc. As a follow-up to the record’s first single, “Seedling,” the band returns with a second single entitled “Meet The Star,” along with an accompanying lyric video that comes with the following description:
“A NigroDunkel Production — keyboard smasher Aaron Dunkel; band video and stills shot by Michael Nigro. Artist/seasoned film editor Aaron Dunkel makes commercials by day, and on the flip-side, creates a ton of paintings and experimental videos and film. Michael Nigro is a New York-based photojournalist who has covered stories across the globe. From conflicts to mosh pits he’ll go anywhere… but shopping.”
To celebrate their 40th anniversary, the band is hosting a 2-night celebration at Dayton Masonic Center (Dayton, OH), taking place Friday September 1 and Saturday September 2. Between the two nights, Dinosaur Jr, Built To Spill, Heartless Bastards, Wednesday, and Kiwi Jr will also perform. Both nights SOLD OUT immediately.
