Midlake: New album due in early 2010

I first discovered these guys back in 2006 when they appeared on a Paste magazine CD sampler, with the track, "Roscoe." Little did I know at the time that the band and their album, The Trials of Van Occupanther had been a critical darling, earning spots across many year end lists. Well it's been more than three years since 'Van Occupanther' came out, and now the Texas band are finally putting the finishing touches on their third and newest album called, The Courage of Others. The new disc will hit stores this February 2 in the U.S. and February 1 in the UK and Europe, and according to a press release from Bella Union, the album will feature a more traditional folk influence.

The Courage of Others track listing:
01 Acts of Man
02 Winter Dies
03 Small Mountain
04 Core of Nature
05 Fortune
06 Rulers, Ruling All Things
07 Children of the Grounds
08 Bring Down
09 The Horn
10 The Courage of Others
11 In the Ground

Roscoe - Midlake
