New Spoon Album

Published: 2004-05-13
Texan four-piece Spoon will soon be releasing a brand new album. The band started recording their fifth studio album in early January in hopes of having the record ready for release this spring. According to their site, Spoon have christened the new album 'The Beast And Dragon Are Adored'.

During the making of their fifth album, lead singer Britt Daniels brought recording to a halt to venture around the United States on his own solo tour. The small five date tour took place during April, so that may be an indication that the new Spoon album is fairly far along.

Spoon has also scheduled a summer tour as a complete band, during which they will premiere some of the songs off of 'The Beast And Dragon Are Adored'. Unfortunately the band will not be coming to Canada during the 12 dates they are scheduled to perform.

The last album that Spoon released was called 'Kill The Moonlight' in the summer of 2002. Although it wasn't as well received as their previous album 'Girls Can Tell', their fourth album held its own share of indie hits. Spoon has generally been underappreciated for all of their efforts and quality music they put out into the world. The band has never been chart-topping or had much mainstream success, although Spoon has been fairly long lasting; the group formed ten years ago in 1994.
