Probably my most anticipated album of the year (I daresay more than Fleet Foxes/The Strokes/ Radiohead) is The Antlers’ follow-up to Hospice. Their fourth LP is titled Burst Apart and will drop May 10 via Frenchkiss.
We spent somewhere in the realm of 5 months recording it (although truthfully, we’ve been planning and sketching the record since we began touring on Hospice back in 2009). We moved into our own recording studio in September 2010, and spent essentially every waking hour working on Burst Apart, producing the record ourselves, with Darby at the helm engineering.

Hospice was amazing; one of my favourite albums of all time. It’s hard to think that anything can possibly be better than 2009’s heartbreaking concept album. But if anyone can achieve the same kind of emotional rapture and brilliant musical engagement, it’s Peter, Darby and Michael.
