Bardo Pond Preps New Release For January

Fire Records has announced the new release from Philadelphia's Bardo Pond. The self-titled album will be the first Bardo Pond recording for Fire Records. Bardo Pond will be released in the US on January 11, 2011.

Bardo Pond have put out many LPs, most of them named after hallucinogens that make you throw up all night and see things - which was kind of them. The titles let you know what you were in for. All of this recorded output is pretty staggering, because, without exception, they seemed able to toss a lasso around some sort of ineffable hoodoo that felt like it was a million years old. If Carl Sagan would have 1.) smoked a little more weed and 2.) not croaked, we like to think he would have cut a Bardo Pond track onto a Voyager Golden Record and blasted it into space. It may well be a better representation of the best parts of the human spirit than Chuck Berry is.

The band will play a few shows to wrap up 2010, before going out on a more extensive tour in 2011. All dates (including this year's Godspeed curated All Tomorrow's Parties) are below.
