With production on their latest album complete and a run of spring dates with Dr. Dog on the calendar, Upper Darby art-punk icons mewithoutYou officially joined the roster of Run For Cover Records today. The announcement, from the label:

We could not be more excited to announce Run For Cover Records has signed the legendary mewithoutYou. We will be releasing the bands 6th LP (produced by Will Yip) this summer, which is the incredible follow up to 2013’s ‘Ten Stories.’ The band’s forthcoming LP is a carefully focused and personal album that spans the band’s impressive career. From the frightened intensity of ‘Catch Us For the Foxes’ and ‘[A -> B] Life’ to the subdued and urgent ‘Ten Stories,’ the band has truly created an album that complements and expands on their incredible 15 year existence.

The announcement came accompanied by a Instagram teaser vid with haunting keyboards and a flickering candle. Watch it below. And as The Key’s resident mwY expert Jeremy Zimmerman says, “MWY/MOBO/TIGERSJAW TOUR FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.” Run For Cover, think you can make that happen?

mewithoutYou plays The Depot in York this Monday, March 23rd; tickets and more info on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.

UPDATE: There is a longer version of the teaser video on YouTube, and wow.
