This was news couple of weeks ago, but wanted to note it from our end. Congrats again, Pedro The lion and Polyvinyl. Joining forces like the Wonder Twins, is a good thing. Unless it’s like Zan, who at times, just turns into an ice-cube (Jayna is the more practical one, we think). Anywho, it’s great news to both parties!
David Bazan had this to say.
“Today is the first day back in the studio as Pedro the Lion. After writing and arranging a handful of new songs, then rehearsing and arranging them further with the band, we’re ready to record a couple of them for a new album. I didn’t realize what calling my music Pedro the Lion again would mean to me, but it’s re-connected me to parts of myself and my history (both sonic and personal) that I had lost touch with. This re-awakening is making the process so enjoyable and I’m grateful for the chance to do this again.”
Bazan also had some deserved compliments for his new label, Polyvinyl.
“As a music fan I’ve watched Polyvinyl thrive in a brutal marketplace and grow their seminal roster to include even more bands that I’m downright obsessed with. As a cog in the music business I’ve gotten to know and appreciate their inner workings gradually through mutual friends and colleagues over many years of visiting their offices in Champaign, Illinois. So when looking for a record label for Pedro the Lion I realized pretty quickly that Polyvinyl was a fantastic fit. I am so thrilled to be working with them.”
A veritable, Love-fest.
So, this new union will mean new STUFF: new music, new merch, new videos.
It’s exciting, and we can’t wait.
In the meantime, here is where you can purchase past stuff from the band [HERE]
