Guided by Voices set to release new album

S o the cat’s out of the bag.  Rumors have been circulating around Dayton for a while now, but today it’s official:  Guided By Voices has recorded a new album.  It’s set for release on New Year’s Day, 2012 — the first day of the last year of the end of the world.  Forget the studio gloss of GBV’s later years and incarnations, Let’s Go Eat the Factory was mostly recorded using the same 4-track process that made the band’s early recordings so endearing and enduring.  GBV’s return to form comes after a fervent year of touring the festival circuit with the so-called “classic lineup.”  The album has 21 songs, a lot for most bands, somewhat humble for GBV.  No word yet on whether Pollard & Co. will tour in support of this record, but hopes remain high that our beloved GBV might take the stage again.  The club is officially, resoundingly,  still open.

Here is the track listing for Let’s Go Eat the Factory, courtesy of Mojo.
