Lo-fi pioneer Lou Barlow has revived his groundbreaking project, Sebadoh, for a new EP and a tour that brings them to Philadelphia next month. The trio plays Union Transfer on Tuesday, Aug. 7; frontman Lou Barlow will play an opening set, and Circle of Buzzards opens; tickets to the all ages show are available now. Sebadoh this week released the Secret EP to Bandcamp, and the band makes a good case for you dropping the $5 to grab a digital download:

new songs for 2012 , a taste of our upcoming 2013 album, but, NONE of these songs will be on that album.. i repeat: NONE of these songs will be on our forthcoming/in progress 2013 LP .. this is our first new material in 14 years ( wtf! )… proceeds from this will help us continue working on the LP and remain as independent as possible.. physical copies (CD) only available at shows on our upcoming tour..

You can stream the EP below, and purchase a download at Sebadoh’s Bandcamp.
