Spiritualized Sign To Fat Possum, Get To Work On Seventh Album

Alright, that’s it–whoever’s responsible for the A&R department at Fat Possum has already earned one hell of a Christmas bonus this year. As if signing Wavves, Smith Westerns, Yuck, and the Odd Future project MellowHype in the past couple years weren’t enough, the label continues to break away from its blues rock beginnings with a new Spiritualized record. The band’s seventh album is currently being recorded and will be ready for a fall release.

J. Spaceman and company will also return to London’s Royal Albert Hall–the site of their stellar 1997 live album–on Tuesday, October 11. Tickets for that gig go on sale March 11 at 9 a.m. If you can’t make it, a link to Spiritualized’s entire New York City show from last year is still available here, along with an interview from a few years ago.
