The insatiably rowdy wild men of Man Man have confirmed the details of their upcoming release, Life Fantastic, due May 10th, 2011 on Anti- Records.

Produced by Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes, Life Fantastic “is an album fueled by the end of relationships, the death of good friends, an absence of structure, drifting from place to place without a real home,” according to frontman Honus Honus. “It’s funny because in the past I was able to take bad situations and turn them into something creative but this time around I just couldn’t at all. I felt nothing, which was worse than being miserable and depressed.  Sometimes I guess you have to stumble around in a fog for awhile until you find a way out, rediscover your heart, take comfort in knowing that the only thing you really have control over is how you choose to roll with the punches. In many ways, this is an album about carrying on.”

The bouncy, bratty, punky album opener “Knuckle Down” is now streaming over at Pitchfork.
