Published Nov 01, 2011Indie rock superstars Guided By Voices are clearly making up for lost time after reuniting their "classic" lineup. First, the group announced their Let's Go Eat the Factory LP, Guided By Voices' 16th overall and first since 2004's Half Smile of the Decomposed, and then they revealed the teaser seven-inch "The Unsinkable Fats Domino." But now it turns out the prolific popsters have a couple more slabs of was headed our way as well.
According to a press sheet, following "The Unsinkable Fats Domino," which comes out November 22 on Matador, the group will take a one-week reprieve before letting loose another single from Let's Go Eat the Factory, "Doughnut for a Snowman," on November 28 via Fire Records.
According to frontman Robert Pollard, it's the "twinkliest song" he's ever written. You can check the song out for yourself down below. It will be backed by four exclusive B-sides.
As previously reported, the band will unleash Let's Go Eat the Factory via their own GBV Inc. imprint on January 1 (Fire handles the release internationally), though the troupe have yet another vinyl single prepped for release a few weeks later. "Chocolate Boy," another track from the full-length, will be featured on the A-side of yet another seven-inch slated for release via GBV Inc. on January 17. The rest of the single's tracklisting has yet to be unveiled.
