Sonic Youth To Release New Album In June

Sonic Youth has wrapped work on its next album, “Sonic Youth Nurse.” The set is due in June via DGC/Interscope and is the follow-up to 2002’s “Murray Street.” Like that album, it was recorded at the band’s Echo Canyon studios in lower Manhattan and produced by the band with Jim O’Rourke.

According to a source, the record makes further inroads into the classic-rock sounds Sonic Youth explored on “Murray Street,” which was recorded in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Sonic Youth has a handful of tour dates on the horizon, including a March 16 appearance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, and a previously announced benefit concert April 30 at Smith College in Northampton, Mass. The group will also be on hand April 3 for the U.K.’s annual All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.

The group is continuing work on its SYR series of experimental LP releases, with the next edition set to include a recording from the 2001 All Tomorrow’s Parties fest. An expanded reissue of Sonic Youth’s 1990 album “Goo” is also in the offing.
