New Lemonheads Album and Tour Information

Evan Dando of Lemonheads(From Pitchforkmedia)Having recently signed to emo-powerhouse- no-more Vagrant Records, the newly re-formed Lemonheads will release their first full-length in almost ten years on September 26. In the near-decade between 1996's Car Button Cloth and this self-titled affair, lead Lemon Evan Dando has been performing more or less as a solo act, releasing an album in 2003 called Baby I'm Bored.

The latest Lemonheads incarnation features Dando and two members of the Descendents: Bill Stevenson (drums) and Karl Alvarez (bass). They're joined on the new album by special guest contributors Garth Hudson (The Band) and the mighty J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Witch). Dando and Stevenson co-produced the album, which was recorded in Fort Collins, Colorado at Stevenson's Blasting Room Studios.

The resurrected Lemonheads will take to the road this winter, playing to thirtysomethings across the U.S.
