ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Destroyer Announces ‘Poison Season’ Out 8/28, World Tour

Hey Destroyer fans, it’s Poison Season. Vancouver’s Dan Bejar returns with a new full-length and world tour. Poison Season opens swathed in Hunky Dory strings as Bejar channels a dashboard Bowie surveying four wracked characters – Jesus, Jacob, Judy, Jack – simultaneously Biblical and musical theatre. This Bittersweet, Times Square-set fanfare is reprised twice more on the record – first as swaying saxophone-stoked “street-rock” and then finally as a curtain-closing reverie. Check out lead single “Dream Lover” above.

“The first and last songs are actually one song tracked live with quintet. I even sang with the band. That song always swung between super austere and super mid-’70s Springsteen/Bowie street-rock. In the end, I decided I wanted both. Couldn’t really figure out a way to sequence the orchestral version within the record, so I decided to carve it up as a book-ending motif, with the rock version squarely in the middle.” – Dan Bejar

In addition, Destroyer will concurrently release a two-song 12-inch as a companion to the new album. It includes a remix of “Forces From Above” along with the orchestral “Times Square, Poison Season,” a song that gave rise to several tracks on the new album, as detailed below. Pre-order HERE

Destroyer will be hitting the road in September for a world tour. Full dates after the jump
