Fact: Nobody is more prolific than Guided By Voices. Three albums in 2020 and two albums in 2021 and now they are back with yet another new album (their 35th) Crystal Nuns Cathedral – out March 4, 2022.
The album holds twelve songs determined to challenge for the title of greatest Guided by Voices album of all-time.
Pure power pop perfection is on display in the lead single “Excited Ones” mix perfectly with the slow burning “Climbing a Ramp” which reaches its climax on a stunning guitar lead before dissolving into the fist pumping anthem “Never Mind the List,” which serves as the beating heart of the entire album. Do you still need convincing? Listen to the one-two punch of “Forced to Sea” and “Huddled” and marvel at the epic scope and vision of an incredible band on full display.
Due to Omicron Covid surge, Guided by Voices are canceling a pair of upcoming shows in New York City and Boston later this month, but they’ll kick off an actual tour on March 18 at the Majestic Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin. Tickets for all upcoming gigs are available at GBV.com/tour.
