The Deal sisters are back in business, officially! On April 8, 2008, the Breeders will release their first album of new material — since 2002′s Title TK — called Mountain Battles, via 4AD. The newie is said to be “an album which captures all the bittersweet electricity of classic Breeders records like Pod and Last Splash, and which breaks new ground at the same time; classic sounding, yet as relevant and exciting as ever.” The Deals, along with Jose Medeles and Mando Lopez have been booked to perform at SXSW, Coachella and Canadian Music Week, along with proper tours of the US and Europe. New jam “We’re Gonna Rise” is now streaming on the band’s official MySpace page. Check it out here.

THE BREEDERS NEW ALBUM — MOUNTAIN BATTLES — SET FOR RELEASE ON 4AD APRIL 8, 2008!

4AD is pleased to announce the forthcoming world-wide release
of Mountain Battles, the new album from The Breeders on Tuesday, April
8, 2008 (April 7 outside of North America).

The Breeders released their last album – Title TK – back in 2002.
Since then, of course, Kim Deal has been part of one of the most highly
successful and warmly received music reunions of all time, getting back
together with the rest of The Pixies for a series of exhilarating live
shows in 2004 and 2005. After that, Kim headed back to Dayton, Ohio to
start writing a new record.

Mountain Battles is the result. It’s an album which captures all the
bittersweet electricity of classic Breeders records like Pod and Last
Splash, and which breaks new ground at the same time; classic sounding,
yet as relevant and exciting as ever.

Mountain Battles was recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in
Chicago, Erika Larson at Stagg Street, Manny Nieto at Manny’s Studio,
at Refraze in Dayton and by Ben Mumphrey in the Basement.

The Breeders are : Kelley Deal, Kim Deal, Jose Medeles and Mando Lopez;
Jose and Mando are both veterans of the Title TK campaign.

The Breeders will be playing live all over the world in 2008. Their
schedule includes performances at Canadian Music Week and SxSW and
Coachella, plus full tours in the USA and in Europe.

The Breeders are also set to play a full UK tour in April to mark the
release of the album.
