They’re not quite as old as The Rolling Stones just yet, but Portland’s the Dandy Warhols have indeed been a band for 18 years, and they’ve got a new album to prove it. This Machine is their latest, 8th studio album, recorded in the band’s own complex, The Odditorium, with their trusted, longtime engineer/producer Jeremy Sherrer, and mixed by Tchad Blake. It will be released via The End Records, (once mainly known for its dark-leaning metal roster), on April 24th.

Though the album is described by Courtney Taylor-Taylor as “guitar-centric and woodsy”, there is one track, “Autumn Carnival”, which sounds harder to define since it was co-penned by Taylor-Taylor along with David J, of Bauhaus fame. I happen to know a few outdoorsy goth types in Portland and beyond so this one will definitely be the first track many want to hear.

Science Fiction author Richard Morgan was chosen to write the Dandy Warhols’ official bio for the album in short story form.
