Venerable indie rockers Spoon have announced their biggest news in two years: this summer the Austin-based band will release a new album and headline a tour. While it’s been two years since the band last headlined a US tour, it’s been even longer since we’ve heard new material from them with this forthcoming album marking their first release in four years.

The musical landscape certainly has shifted in those four years with EDM and other electro-based forms taking over. Even Coldplay has recently ventured into deeply brooding electronic-based music. That said, it should be interesting to see how Spoon reacts to all the time off and whether they come back with the Spoon we know and love or an updated version of their sound.

Spoon’s summer tour, which kicked off last week, will bring them to Los Angeles on August 8th for a special event on the Fairbanks Lawn at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Tickets for Spoon’s “They Want My Soul” event were released May 9th and are still available.

We can’t wait to see Britt Daniel under the spooky cemetery lights. Check out the full list of concert dates below.
