California thoughtful rockers The Dodos are releasing their third album, Time To Die, in North America come September 15 (or digitally July 28) and in the UK on August 31 (digitally July 27).
But you don’t need to worry about these confusing dates right now. Even though that may seem a long time to wait for an anticipated record right now, the Dodos are being quite generous by supplying the album online to listen to for free for a short time.
Unfortunately, this streaming comes from a bad background: it’s a mature response (cough, Jack White, cough) from the band to the fact that the album has leaked. They’re upset, but they know there’s a way to at least lesson the flow of said leak.
If you go to TimeToDie.net, you can see a video statement from the Dodos, listen to the album, and download a free track of “Fables.”
The Dodos recently played what I heard to be a very successful show with Beirut in Toronto at the Phoenix, but they’ll be back in the city on October 17 at Lee’s Palace. They’ll play Montreal October 16 at La Sala Rossa, and Vancouver October 26 at The Biltmore Cabaret.
