Humbug was produced by by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco and will be released August 25 on Domino Records. The band will be making the most of their time while in New York City in the next week as they take the stage at the All Points West Music and Arts festival on Saturday, August 1, enjoy a sold-out show at Highline Ballroom on the 3rd and a scheduled performance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on August 4.
